We can provide digital images when ...

  • the material is suitable for scanning with regard to its physical condition and size.
  • You intend to use the digital images personally for your scientific work. If you should intend to use it commercially, please contact the bpk- Bildagentur for further information.


Please state precisely the work's title when filling in the order form so that we can handle your order as quickly as possible.
