On the Incunabula: The earliest printed works in the Wellcome Library are the incunabula - books printed before 1501. This collection numbers more than 600 volumes, most of which were acquired during Sir Henry Wellcome’s lifetime (1853–1936), and it is one of the most important collections of medical incunabula in the world. Reflecting the breadth of Henry Wellcome’s collecting interests, as well as the fact that medicine intersected with many other fields of knowledge in this period, it also includes works that relate to non-medical subjects, such as Hartmann Schedel’s richly-illustrated Liber chronicarum (The Nuremberg Chronicle, 1493).

  58. 58. The complete run of Vogue Italia – one of the most influential and renowned international editions of Vogue – from its launch in 1964 to present. Recognized as the least commercials and most artistic edition of Vogue, its many innovative, often controversial, initiatives include an all-black issue for July 2008, featuring only black models and offering articles about black women in the arts. Vogue Italia’s appeal and influence is international, with almost half of its issues typically being sold outside of Italy. Whereas international editions of Vogue are recognized as representing some of the principal sources for research in fashion and related field, few libraries outside the country of a given edition have maintained substantial print holding of these publications overtime. Even where good print holdings do exist, conducting paper-based research across several decades of content is impractical for most researchers. By offering access to the complete run of Vogue Italia, ProQuest allows researchers to pursue new lines of inquiry against one of the most influential international Vogue editions.
