About Manuscripts, Autographs and Closed Collections

These rich holdings of the Department, whose extent we can scarcely estimate, offer a manifold material for the most varied fields of scholarly research in history, literature, and art.
Every type of scholarly processing of the material is supported by the staff of the Department within the bounds of the possible. Written requests for information are readily answered.
But please understand that research work can be done by the Department staff only to a limited extent.
