Our bilingual volume Germanico-Hungarica, Album mit Schätzen aus der Sammlung Alter Drucke / An Album of the Treasures from the Collection of Early Printed Books is a joint publication of the Embassy of Germany in Budapest and National Széchényi Library.

This artistically designed book presents a selection of the Germanica-related treasures of our Collection of Early Prints showing the colorful diversity of the centuries-old German-Hungarian relations. The anthology is illustrated by color reproductions of pages from the selected works, and their brief description. There are famous and unknown, decorative and less attractive but all the more interesting chronicles, travel journals, war reports, works on national history, wood and copper engravings, religious readings and schoolbooks included in this book – all beautiful examples of the German-Hungarian interactions between the 10th and 17th centuries.
