Athanasius Kircher (1602-1680). Jesuit Scholar. An Exhibition of his Works in the Harold B. Lee Library Collections at Brigham Young University.

Introduction and Descriptions by Brian L. Merrill. Illus. xxxviii, 74 pp. Large 8vo, orig. illustrated wrappers. Provo: 1989.

This catalogue has become a work of permanent reference. The Introduction contains a very full biographical sketch of Kircher, with much information not readily available. A list of his major works is provided.

The balance of the catalogue is devoted to careful descriptions of B.Y.U.'s collection of Kircher -- 31 items in all -- with title-page transcriptions, pagination collations, and invaluable annotations regarding the importance of each work, provenance, binding, and references.

Now out-of-print and very difficult to find.
