3 Simple Ways to Find the Perfect Edition for You
Search on FacsimileFinder.com, using 3 different smart approaches
Your Word first
Start with a keyword in our search bar; then refine using our clever filters geared to the History of Illumination.
Pick a Price... Any Price
Our Price Matcher Tool is a huge help for limited budgets! Enter your amount and Facsimile Finder returns the most recent titles (before the price goes up) and special offers first, giving you the best value for your money.
Browse with your Fantasy
Choose a theme, a style, or a country and you're good to go! The Browse section is perfect to let your imagination run wild and stumble upon new inspirations.
Is this the one?
We'll smash all your doubts on historical and bibliographic information
One view for all you need
All the information you might dream of are conveniently placed in plain view.
A short Codicology box gives you an overview on the essential historical details.
A longer Description tells you the compelling story of the manuscript.
What about Shelfmarks? We got you covered! Top of the page, just under the title.
They say it's unique
They say it's unique, but sometimes you get more versions of the same facsimile.
With our smart layout, you'll get the complete picture of what has been printed in the last years.
Get the Basic Information in the small box (Publisher, year of publication, commentary authors), and then drill down with the View More Versions button.
Those gorgeous photos
Our hand-on approach will show you realistic photos of the real facsimile edition. Look out for the "Photo by Facsimile Finder" label: that's a photo we've taken for you, to demonstrate how the facsimile really looks. In all other cases, you'll know if it's a "Publisher" photo, or a picture of the original manuscript.
We'll crush all your doubts on historical and bibliographic information
Each facsimile edition comes with a detailed description of the original manuscript's historical information, and of its modern replica(s).
