Manuscripts & Precious Books in the Maurits Sabbe Library - KU Leuven

The Maurits Sabbe Library of the Faculty of Theology and Religious Studies of the University of Leuven (KU Leuven) holds an exceptional treasury of manuscripts and printed books dating from the 10th to the 19th century. As part of KU Leuven Libraries it is recognised as a Heritage Library of the Flemish Community. This beautifully illustrated volume explores fourty-five remarkable books representing the immense variety and richness of the collections in the Maurits Sabbe Library. The described Bibles, missals, atlases, religious, devotional, historical, botanical, and medical works are all reflecting the wealth of one of the most distinctive rare book collections in the Low Countries.
