Summary/Abstract: The article presents an analysis of the Italian scientific literature acquired in the library collection from its founding in 1888 to 1903, fulfilling one of the main tasks – “to collect and store foreign literature as the most important part of the library’s collections”. Italian scientific editions are one of the five main components of the collection of Italian rare and valuable books in the University Library. The emergence of Italian editions in the first years after the founding of the library is due primarily to the role of Italy in Europe’s cultural history, secondly to the changed geopolitical circumstances that took place after the Liberation. The purchase of Italian scientific and scholarly literature, which fills a gap in the period of the fundamental development of library collections (especially in the field of humanities), is essential for the progress of the University Library and is among the priorities of the newly established Bulgarian University. The largest volume group in the collection of Italian rare and valuable editions is the group of scientific publications. It contains 283 titles in several fields – law, history, philology, philosophy, pedagogy, and philological sciences. Detailed analysis of the Italian scientific literature in the library collections shows that most of the scientific editions in various research fields retain significant.
