Printing in Iberia brings together titles from across the peninsular from it origins in the late 1470s as the work of mostly German printers to its establishment throughout the region. Latin, and the Iberian vernaculars, Castilian, Catalan and Portuguese, all feature in these units. Works from the main printing cities such as Barcelona, Valencia, Seville, Salamanca and Burgos are included as well as books from the presses of Fadrique de Basilea, Compañeros alemanes, Pedro Posa and Lambert Palmart amongst others. The titles represent the broad range of issues that confronted the Iberian Peninsular towards the end of the 15th Century.
