Describes the history of the fabulous Gennadeion Library at the American School of Classical Studies in Athens. Of the 70 incunables in the Gennadius Library, thirty-nine are Greek, an impressive number considering that fewer than seventy Greek books had been printed by 1500 (see Proctor, Printing of Greek in the Fifteenth Century, 1900). Incidentally, these incunables are listed in Goff as "GenL."
