The Schøyen Collection


The National Library of Norway has a very extensive manuscript repository within the Schøyen Collection. In fact, the 13,500 manuscript items spanning 5000 years and covering a myriad of subjects and countries is the largest collection established in the 20th century. Although only sample images of each are displayed, it is a formidable database of historical writings. The website is in english and is easy to navigate.
