Erasmus on-line

La bibliothèque de Rotterdam a développé une base de données électronique qui rassemble les éditions d'Érasme du XVIe s., tant en latin qu'en traductions. La Maison d'Érasme s'est associée à ce projet et décidé de verser sa propre base de données d'éditions anciennes d'Érasme dans ce catalogue général.

Collection of Antiquarian Books

The collection of antiquarian books dates from the time when the museum received a donation from a Dutch pastor, Victor Schmidt in the 1930s. But, in fact, it was only after the war during the curatorship of Jean-Pierre Vanden Branden, who held the post for forty years (1954-1994), that there was a period of considerable growth. At the moment of writing (2009), the collection numbers more than 1200 works from the 16th century. This collection consists of both Erasmus’ own writings and of works by other authors that were to be found in his personal collection, and of biographies and works about him (works that contain his notes, fragments from his books etc.). Since 1994 Marcus De Schepper and Alexandre Vanautgaerden have been working on a scholarly research catalogue on the lines of that of Joseph De Reuck (Bibiliotheca Erasmiana Bruxellensis) of the Koninklijke Bibliotheek / Bibliothèque royale.

Those doing research can consult the titles of modern works on Erasmus on the site of Koninklijke Bibliotheek / Bibliothèque royale: http://opac.kbr.be/fkbr0.htm

Our Museum is also a museum of books and literature. There is a reading room for those who do research, and this allows us to apply Erasmus’ philosophy of the colloquium to the letter:

Words and Things.
