AbstractLibraries, especially since the nineteenth century, have included real private documents and archives among their special collections. The typologies are analyzed, also focusing on author libraries, where books, as they are often rich in manuscript interventions by the owners, take on the archival value. We also dwell on the often improper descriptive treatment that this material has undergone in libraries.
