Catalogue of lost and damaged books
Herzogin Anna Amalia Bibliothek
(Duchess Anna Amalia Library, Weimar, Germany)
This database contains an inventory of all the books, which were kept
on the second gallery of the Rococo hall - the area most strongly
damaged by the fire -
and have likely been lost ("vermutlich Verlust").
The books on the first gallery and in the Rococo hall, which were
severely damaged by water
and fire, but salvaged, will be gradually supplemented to the calatogue
in the coming months.
Approximately 10,000 works listed only in card catalogues are not
among them 2,827 sheet-music compositions.
We would be extremely grateful to libraries or private collectors who
wish to donate duplicates they might have to our library to help us
restore some of our lost books.
