In this paper, we introduce a visualization prototype designed to assist domain experts in examining the dispersal of books from religious orders throughout Europe during the sixteenth century and beyond. The prototype is the result of a collaboration between visualization researchers and a historical book researcher, aiming to apply visualization techniques to address real-world domain challenges. Over two months, we engaged in an intensive collaboration with the domain expert to analyze domain issues and requirements and subsequently developed a prototype featuring two interfaces. Weekly discussions were held with the domain expert to ensure that the design and development process remained on track and to continuously evaluate the prototype. As the project is in its early stages, the prototype has demonstrated potential for improvement and scalability. Future work will focus on more formal and systematic evaluations of usability and practicality.
