BLACK DEATH: SOURCES CONCERNING THE EUROPEAN PLAGUE
Series One: Rare Printed Sources from the Herzog August Bibliothek, Wolfenbüttel, c1470-1822

Part 1: Sources, c1470-1621

Part 1 covers rare printed sources for 1474-1621, but it should be appreciated that many items relate back to the 1340’s when the Black Death ravaged the shores of the Eastern Mediterranean – there is much of interest to scholars of the Medieval period.

  • There is material for Germany, France, Italy, England, Switzerland and Central Europe.  The pamphlet literature, town ordinances, treatises and notes on experiments make up a body of literature that is remarkable in its geographical range and time span.
  • There are excellent accounts on the origins, courses and effects of the Plague.
  • This is rich material for scholars of Medieval and Early Modern Europe wanting to understand the thinking, consciousness, economic conditions and social realities of this period.
