There are about 25,000 books in the Museum’s collections, the majority of them document the history of Czech book art from the Middle ages to the present day, but included are also foreign books, mainly German, Italian, French and English. The collections document the history of book-binding, print, illustration and lettering, and the evolution of the book in its entirety. It contains about 100 manuscripts from the 13th—20th centuries, and 45 incunabula. Within the historical part of the collections, children’s and science books and books on architecture are of particular importance. The book of the 19th and 20th centuries is represented primarily by examples of art books, student work from the School of Applied Arts in Prague and large sets documenting the influence of various artistic styles in book design.
