 +This striking manuscript, with numerous illustrations of coat of arms, lists more than 900 donors and about 3300 donations. Scholars, politicians,​ merchants, refugees as well as ambassadors donated books and objects such as portraits or coins to the Zurich Public Library.

The names, titles and shelfmarks of the copies of the Zentralbibliothek are searchable in full-text (via the search field at the top right).
