The Herzog August Library Wolfenbüttel is one of the largest collections of numismatic publications published in the 17th century in the German Reich. It was therefore also the suitable place for a conference, which is linked to a symposium organized by Peter Berghaus (these contributions were published as volume 64 of the Wolfenbüttel researches). If the conference was concerned with the development of the methods of a science, the 24 contributions of this volume deal with all aspects of the numismatic book production of the 17th century and its influence on different spheres of life within a European framework. In the 17th century the growing number of miracle chambers, in which coins and medals also played an important role, caused a strong demand for descriptive publications. Last but not least, the numerous university foundations led to a strong increase in numismatic book production - here the symposium could contribute to closing further gaps and stimulating research.
