I am a scholar looking for an early edition of Calvin’s Institutes.

In Advanced Search, I select Author from the first drop-down and type Calvin, Jean. I then select All Fields and type Institutio. In Publication date range, I type 1/1/1500 and 1/1/1600. In content type I select Book/eBook.

I get 26 results, and at the top I can sort by date (oldest). There I see the full text online in Theological Commons and a physical copy available in Special Collections, SCB #3376.
