100 highlights of the Koninklijke Bibliotheek

The Koninklijke Bibliotheek is a treasure-house of books and manuscripts from many centuries. Hundred of its finest and most interesting objects were brought together in the book 'Hundred Highlights of the Koninklijke Bibliotheek' in 1994 (The book is sold out now). The KB created the web exhibition of the same name, based on the book.

The website allows the user to browse the highlights thematically or by number. Each image has been accompanied by a representative description and references.
