The nucleus of the present Vatican Library consists of Pope Nicholas V collection of ancient texts, some dating from medieval times, of more than 1,500 manuscripts. At the time of his death, in 1455, his collection was the greatest in Europe. Today, the Vatican Library houses more than 70,000 volumes of manuscripts, 100,000 individual autographs, about 7,000 incunabula, 100,000 engravings and maps, thousands of parchments, and tens of thousands of archival volumes and files.
