The Beatus Rhenanus Library holds print materials as well as a number of manuscripts. Using a dense and extensive network, Rhenanus amassed the works from across Europe which now constitute this collection. Since 1889, the collection has been housed in the old Wheat Hall, built in 1840 by the architect Gustave Klotz. The collection includes 1,287 printed works in 423 volumes, 264 preserved handwritten letters and some 33 volumes of manuscripts (94 works).
