University of Erfurt

Collection components

The Perthes Collection consists of the Map Collection, the Library of the Publishing House and the Archive of the Publishing House. Numerous printing plates, predominantly copper plates, are preserved in the Archive as outstanding examples of map production techniques. These are supplemented by the holdings of the Editorial Library and the editorial body of the Gothaischer Hofkalender (Gotha Court Calendar). Another of the Collection’s special holdings is the Henze Library.

Since the original arrangement of the Collection was based on the output of the publishing house, materials from other areas are also present in each section of the Collection.
