Göttingen treasures on video

Göttinger KostbarkeitenIn our video series ‘Göttingen Treasures’ we present another special work from the historical holdings of the SUB Göttingen: Franz Johann Schultz: Abbildung der inn- und ausländischen Bäume, Stauden und Sträuche, welche in Oesterreich fortkommen... - a multi-volume guide from the years 1792 to 1804 with detailed plant illustrations lavishly colored by hand (call number: DD2016 C 2:1/2/3 RARA).

This very rare work was acquired in 2016 for the AG Sammlung Deutscher Drucke (collection of German Prints of the 18th Century). These books, as well as many other manuscripts and historical prints, can be viewed by appointment in the reading room of the Historical Building of the SUB Göttingen.
