Holdings Notes:

The UB has an extensive old geoscientific collection that includes geological and paleontological literature, earth descriptions, travelogues, maps, and atlases from the 16th to 19th centuries.

Of particular regional interest is an almost complete copy of the first edition of Württemberg cadastral maps from the 1818-1840 state survey.
