Reports addressed to the Trustees of the British Museum on the Age of the Manuscript
The report is on an illuminated manuscript over which there had been some controversy as to its age. The Trustees of the British Museum had asked for a report from several distinguished scholars to resolve the matter. This copy had been in the University of Bristol's library at one time as evidenced by the bookplate and library markings. Very worn, disbound. pages are clean and easily read.

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.
