Owners of Spanish Old Books in Batthyaneum Library 17th to 19th century (II)
Our study continues the investigation of the ex-librises and of the notices on the old books from the old books collection of the Bathyaneum Library, in order to identify the owners and find out the cultural travels of the books, from their printing places to the moment they entered the collection of the famous Bathyaneum library from Alba Iulia.
Among the owners of old Spanish books we notice especially the schools run by the Jesuits in Vienna, as well as some clerics and laymen who signed their names on the pages of these works, helping us this way to retrace the bibliophile itineraries for the European modern age. These books still preserve in the shadow of anonymity the names of some persons who are yet to be identified.
