BIBLIOGRAPHIE DER ÖSTERREICHISCHEN DRUCKE DES XV. UND XVI. JAHRDUNDERTS.
Reprint of the first edition printed in Vienna in 1913. (Besterman 5084). The original scope of this bibliography was to produce the definitive catalogue of Austrian printing during this period. Unfortunately, the war cut short the effort and only this volume, which meticulously describes 200 incunables from Trient, Vienna and Schrattenthal, was produced. The entries consist of detailed descriptions with extensive notes and cross references to the standard works.
