Summary/Abstract: This study describes the efforts made to identify and turn to good account the incunabula of the Batthyaneum Library. Seven new incunabula have been discovered (Annex I). Three more incunabula could not be identified due to the absence of identifying data (time and place of printing, name of printer), as well as due to their deteriorated state and lack of bibliographical analogies (Annex II). The reduction of the library collection between World War I and II was accounted for when a list of incunabula duplicates sold in 1930 and 1931 was found.
