(Silver Binding)

Codex Argenteus Bibliothecae R. Univ. Upsaliensis.

Uppsala: Almquist & Wikselle, 1959. 16ff. A short history of the fifth-century manuscript of the same title, printed in Swedish, English, French, and German. The original manuscript was important not only for its historic value, but also because it is the chief source of knowledge on the Gothic language. A fine copy in self-wrappers. Housed in a silver box, which is a miniature reproduction of the beautifully ornate seventeenth-century box which holds the original manuscript. (Welsh 1972; Bondy p. 181; MBC I: No. 2, p. 13). (1 1/4 by 1; 31x26mm). Item #32223
