Abstract:
Among the holdings of the Department of Special Collections at the University of Arizona Library is a collection of incunabula numbering thirty-nine titles. This interesting collection of early printed books represents a wide variety of subjects that appealed to the late medieval reader and demonstrates as well a good range of early editorial practice and typographic presentation. None of the University's copies of these titles is listed in Frederick B. Goff's Incunabula in American Libraries: a Third Census (1973). The present work provides a description of each incunabulum according to Henry Guppy's Rules for the Cataloguing of Incunabula and offers a comprehensive study of the features of the collection as a whole and of its individual volumes for the purpose of establishing a record of the collection and bringing its scholarly value into clearer focus.
