An amazing library find

A recent discovery of a 500 year old library catalog is pretty exciting. I can’t recall reading about something of this caliber being discovered previously. As someone who incorporates cataloging history into one of the courses he teaches, I am happy to include this in that particular lecture in future. What is particularly interesting about this artifact is that it not only provides catalog entries for a famous library collection, but also contains excerpts or summaries of those works, many of which are lost to time.
