Written in German. Edited by Rudolf Beer. Two parts bound separately. A Memorial of the Art of Writing from the Manuscript Collection of the "Habsburg-Lothringischen Erzhauses". Part One contains plates of facsimiles of fragments of Hilarius Pictaviensis "De Trinitate" and a tract, "Contra Arianos", as well as plates of the Golden Psalter of King Charlemagne. Part Two contains plates of facsimiles of "Bobbienser Mischhandschrift: Patristische und grammatische Schriften, zum Teil auf reskribierten Blättern mit klassischen, biblischen und apokryphen Texten" as well as the Sacraments of Pope Gregory I, or Gregory the Great. The text explains and expounds upon these manuscripts. Part One has the text bound regularly, whereas the text of Part Two is comprised of 10 loose sets of folio sheets folded into quarters, therefore being split into 8 pages per section.
