The Incunabula Short Title Catalogue is the international database of 15th-century European printing created by the British Library with contributions from institutions worldwide.
1) Perform a simple search using different kinds of keywords
2) Find items by browsing author, title, dates, and other headings
The database records nearly every item printed from movable type before 1501, but not material printed entirely from woodblocks or engraved plates. 29,777 editions are listed as at January 8th 2008, including some 16th-century items previously assigned incorrectly to the 15th century.
At first glance, many documents written at this time look illegible to the modern reader. By reading the practical tips and working through the documents in the Tutorial in order of difficulty, you will find that it becomes much easier to read old handwriting.
Gwen Sims-Williams's insight:
Concise introduction to reading handwriting from 1500 - 1800. Includes interactive tutorials (and a game!)
Digitised edition of incunabule kept in the Staatsbibliothek München. Text gives example of how to address letters to different ranks of society. A few typographical variations compared to a very similar edition housed in the UL in Cambridge.
