Hesse’s personal library and his literary remains were divided between the Marbach Archives (Deutsches Literaturarchiv Marbach) and the Swiss National Library (Berne) in 1964. The Hermann Hesse Archive in Marbach contains 6725 volumes: nearly all publications of the German author, including translations, secondary literature and parts of Hesse’s personal library. The Swiss National Library owns manuscripts, letters and personal property of Hermann Hesse, for example his spectacles or his type writers (with the italic letters Hesse very often used). Both archives can now be browsed online.
