This exhibition is the culmination of a five-year project to catalogue all of Cambridge University Library’s incunabula, made possible by a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
The exhibition was curated by Ed Potten, with assistance from Laura Nuvoloni, William Hale, Emily Dourish and Liam Sims.
The digitisation of books from the Incunabula collection has been made possible by a gift from the Howard and Abby Milstein Foundation.
Extensive conservation work for the project was carried out by members of the Library’s Conservation department, including Jim Bloxam, Deborah Farndell, Shaun Thompson, Ngaio Vince-Dewerse and Emma Nichols. Films were produced by Błażej Mikuła.
