Incunabula Short Title Catalogue (ISTC)

International database of 15th-century European imprints for nearly every item printed from movable type before 1501. Includes some 16th-century items previously assigned incorrectly to the 15th century. Information on each item includes authors, short titles, the language of the text, printer, place and date of printing, and format. Locations are noted if they have been verified. Links are provided to online digital facsimiles wherever possible. (Updates ongoing)
