Online database of books printed in current Flanders (Southern Low Countries) from the beginning of print until 1800. Contains a growing number of 16th century editions published in Antwerp and Louvain. Includes references to copies in select Belgian and foreign libraries and some links to online copies. This is an ongoing project, currently the 17th century is the best covered.
The project aims to explore and visualize how knowledge circulated during the booming scientific revolution of the 17th-century. The CKCC project built a web application called ePistolarium. With this application researchers can browse and analyze around 20,000 letters that were written by and sent to 17th century scholars who lived in the Dutch Republic. Moreover, the ePistolarium enables visualizations of geographical, time-based, social network and co-citation inquiries.
