Biblioteca Bodoni

Giambattista Bodoni (1740-1813) was an Italian printer, who was originally from Piedmont but worked in Parma. The Biblioteca Bodoni contains information concerning his life and work. While the section ‘Correspondence’ includes documents on Bodoni’s life and is not freely accessible, the ‘Digital library’ is free of charge. This section contains digitized versions of Bodoni’s editions, together with typobibliographical and historical information about them. Each book can be browsed. It is possible to search the index records of the material on the website using keyword, author, and year. These searches can also be limited by type of material.

The Biblioteca Bodoni is the result of a cooperation between the Biblioteca Palatina and the Museo Bodoniano of Parma. The project is supported by Ediciones Universidad de Salamanca.
