The project Clusius correspondence is a collaboration between Huygens ING and the Scaliger Institute. It presents all existing transcriptions of the letters of Clusius. Included are the metadata of all known letters (1600 in total), mostly accompanied by facsimile reproductions from the University Library Leiden, and almost 1000 transcriptions of letters made by different researchers in the course of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. The online edition is not a scholarly edition in the traditional sense. Due to the many different sources of the (published and unpublished) transcriptions, the quality of the edition is not uniform. Furthermore, virtually no annotation is added (yet). Interested scholars are invited to search and to improve the edition.
