This year, the Historical Library will be adorning itself with "Belles Lettres" - showcasing books from the foundations' collection that are particularly worth seeing: Chivalric novels, tragedies, famous poems, novellas and fairy tales. The exhibits range from a medieval manuscript to magnificently illustrated early modern prints and first editions from the Classical and Romantic periods. The exhibition is also a contribution to the Klopstock Year 2024.

The opening of the cabinet exhibition will be introduced with a lecture by Dr Christiane Holm, Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg, Institute of German Studies, on the special challenges of exhibiting books.
