The volumes of the Allgemeine Deutsche Biographie.

Allgemeine Deutsche Biographie (ADB) is one of the most important and most comprehensive biographical reference works in the German language.[1]

It was published by the Historical Commission of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences between 1875 and 1912 in 56 volumes, printed in Leipzig by Duncker & Humblot. The ADB contains biographies of about 26,500 people who died before 1900 and lived in the German language Sprachraum of their time, including people from the Netherlands before 1648.[1]

Its successor, the Neue Deutsche Biographie, was started in 1953 and is planned to be ready in 2017.[1]
