The Schoyen Collection began in 1955 with the acquisition of a printed book containing a manuscript fragment. Continuing to collect both incunables and manuscripts, the manuscripts soon outpaced the collecting of incunables. These 45 incunables were thus put up for sale in order to concentrate on manuscripts. Included are books printed by Johann Fust and Peter Schoffer, Anton Koberger and Johann Mentelin.
