University library "St. Kliment Ohridski"

Inscribed books – title pages

Books with dedications and gift inscriptions have a special place in the University Library. They are part of the collection of rare and valuable books. The interest in such unique copies increases significantly when they are associated with the names of famous personalities – Nobel laureates, foreign and Bulgarian scientists, university professors, writers and cultural activists who have been awarded the honorary title “Doctor Honoris Causa of Sofia University”.

The digital collection includes Bulgarian books with gift inscriptions published in the early 20th century, as well as Bulgarian and foreign editions donated to the Sofia University Library by their authors. The books with inscriptions allow reconstruction of the relations between the university professors and their attitude towards the library.
