Also known as: Verzeichnis der im deutschen Sprachraum erschienenen Drucke des 17. Jahrhunderts
This project sets out to establish a German national bibliography of 17th-century imprints printed or published in the German-speaking countries of that century. Broadsheets are listed, but musical notations and maps are excluded.
The main contributing libraries are the Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin PreuÃŸischer Kulturbesitz (Berlin State Library), the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek München (Bavarian State Library Munich) and the Herzog August Bibliothek Wolfenbüttel (Duke August Library Wolfenbüttel).
The collection is projected to include some 300,000 imprints.
