An agreement between the GRI and the Tokyo National Research Institute for Cultural Properties (Tobunken) has led to the digitization of more than 300 woodblock print books from the collection of Kazuma Oda (1882-1956), a lithographer and a researcher of Ukiyo-e who devoted himself to the work of Hokusai (1760-1849). These works are now available on the Portal, with another 500 Edo period woodblock print books to be added later in the spring [2021].

The Digital Cicognara Library is an international initiative to recreate in digital form the remarkable private book collection of Count Leopoldo Cicognara (1767–1834). Cicognara’s collection of some five thousand early imprints stands as an important scholarly resource for the literature of art and archaeology. Cicognara’s famous, two-volume inventory of his library, the Catalogo ragionato dei libri d’arte e d’antichità, published in 1821 and often reprinted, remains an essential tool for scholars and bibliophiles.
The full Digital Cicognara Library is being built by contributing partners. The site presents the full text of the Catalogo integrated with digital images and full text of every title in the corpus, including black-and-white facsimiles of the original volumes in the Vatican, one or more high-resolution, color facsimiles of unique copies from partner libraries, and thorough bibliographic information.
