The Census of Italian 16th Century Editions (EDIT 16) aims at documenting Italian books printed during the 16th century and at reviewing the countrywide heritage.

The data base includes editions printed in Italy between 1501 and 1600, in any language, and editions printed abroad in Italian.

It also contains information about the authors, publishers, uniform titles, printers' devices which can be used for direct search and the related bibliographic sources archive.

1,591 state, local authority, church and private libraries are taking part in the Census in close collaboration with ICCU, that manages the project, providing information and describing the 16th century editions held by them.
