    Summary:

    Collection comprises original woodcuts and wood engravings, mainly illustrations from European books of the 15th to 18th centuries. Dr. Wilhelm Ludwig Schreiber (1855-1932) assembled this extensive study collection for early printed book illustration. In addition to an estimated 375 woodcuts from incunabula, the most extensive part of the collection dates from the 16th century and features borders, title pages, initials, and ornaments as well as identified portraits and religious illustrations. Woodcuts from books published in Germany, the Netherlands, Czechoslovakia, Poland, France, Spain, and Italy are included, and most of the prominent artists of the period are represented. There are a few aquatints and chiaroscuro woodcuts. The collection was formed for the study of artists and printing history and for the study of subjects. The woodcuts are from works on military history, natural history, trades and industries, physiognomy, medicine, hunting, and other special fields as well as from Bibles, fables, and editions of the classics. (Source: Vanderbilt guide, No. 645). Researchers interested in incunabula and early modern book illustrations are encouraged to consult copies of the books held by the Rare Book and Special Collections Division of the Library or other institutions. The Schreiber prints have been trimmed to show only images and can be better understood in their original contexts.
