Albert Schatz Collection

Abstract: "The scope of this digital presentation comprises all 12,238 Schatz libretti. His intent was to write a comprehensive history of opera through the study of primary sources, which led to his travels throughout Europe to collect these libretti, including many first and early Italian, German and French editions from the 17th and 18th centuries: in the end, his collection totaled 12,000 operatic and 238 oratorio and cantata libretti. The images were generated from the Library's microfilm copy of that collection."
