Vitae Pomeranorum

 The Vitae Pomeranorum collection mainly contains so-called personal and occasional writings of the early modern period: prints which were produced in small editions for special occasions, such as wedding, baptismal and funeral poems, funeral sermons, jubilee writings, biographies and genealogical tables, as well as invitations to the award of academic degrees, making these pieces particularly important for genealogical and regional research and for the history of the art of printing.

Among these vitae are 171 prints from the 16th century, 5531 from the 17th century and 2986 from the 18th century.
In German there are 4456 titles, in Latin 4145, in Swedish 228 and in French 9 titles.

6788 titles come from Pomeranian printing places. The persons addressed are mainly personalities from Pomerania and Sweden.

With funds from the Agnes Lohmann Foundation, the prints are catalogued and digitised in a cooperation project with the Herzog August Library in Wolfenbüttel.
