Rare Books

You can find plenty of ancient, dirty and dusted old books in rare books collection of NTK, but these books might have significant meaning for the future generations to come. Many classical writers resides in small paper boxes somewhere in the dungeons of NTK hiding before the sun light and paper-eating bugs. The oldest book is probably writen by Albrecht Durer, and you will most likely never see it, because it is locked in the goblin vault without key. You might also be interested in the work of our colleagues on the pages of HF NTK.
