Rare Books Collection

Rare Books Collection

The Rare Books Collection consists of 200 incunabula (books printed before 1 January 1501), rare and precious Luxembourgish printed works dating from before 1800, works written by authors who were born, lived or taught in Old Regime Luxembourg (such as Latomus, Sturm, Hovaeus, Wiltheim, etc.), the Bindings Collection (antiquarian and new bindings) as well as several thousand works remarkable for their rarity, content or provenance.


Documents in this collection are not available for home loan. However, you can view them in our Dr Jean-Claude Loutsch Rare Books Reading Room on the 1st floor. A member of staff will guide you in the proper handling of these precious documents.

Part of the collection is referenced in a-z.lu and can be pre-ordered online or by written request.
