2016 Arts and Archives: Prague's two palace libraries

The German edition of Marcus Catesby's Beschreibung von Carolina, Florida und den Bahamischen Inseln (1755) - palace library of the Counts Kinsky

Today's destinations were the two last palace libraries in Prague, palace library of the Counts Kinsky and Nostitz majorat Library. Both of them are part of the National Museum Library under the Ministry of Culture. These Libraries include a collection of manuscripts, which currently includes more than 6,000 volumes, a collection of incunabula (printed books, not handwritten before the year 1501), an exclusive collection of early printed books.
