Astrik L. Gabriel Collection of Early Printed Books
Professor Astrik L. Gabriel's most recent donation to the University Libraries of Notre Dame consists of 262 titles bound in 245 volumes. The books are written in Latin, French, German, Italian, Greek and Hebrew, and includes at least one title published for each of the years from 1501 to 1600.
Many of the original bindings remain intact, some incorporating sheets from incunabula and late medieval manuscripts. The history of universities is well represented in this collection by the many volumes of graduation poems and theses.
