The Magnus Collection was acquired from a former mayor of Berlin, Ernst Magnus, and consists of approximately 300 French and German books, most of which are signed by their famous authors. A highlight of the Magnus Collection is the signed copy of “Manuel D’Artillerie” (1836) by Napoleon-Louis Bonaparte III. Items from this collection can be found in the APU Library Catalog.
