22. Das Lorscher Evangeliar.  München: Prestel Verlag, 1965. Number 468 of 900 printed. Facsimile of a magnificent manuscript from the Carolingian era, the Codex Aureus Laurensius (Biblioteca Apostolica Vaticana, Pal. lat. 50). Folio (37.5 x 27.8cm). Bound in quarter vellum with red cloth. In fine condition. Small library stamp on top edge of introduction. Facsimile is exact and reproduced in monochrome, with the exception of the incipit page of each gospel book, done in full color, accompanied by a frontispiece depicting the evangelist; the title-page, depicting Christ in Majesty; and the ornately decorated canon tables. Loosely laid in is the commentary of Wolfgange Braunfels bound in original wrappers, containing color photography of the original ivory covers. After centuries of separation, the four parts which comprise the Lorsch Gospels were united in Coronation Hall of the Holy Roman Empire in Aachen, Germany, on the occasion of the 1965 exhibition of the Council of Europe 'Charlemagne: His Achievements and Influence'. The cooperation of the respective owners made it possible to photograph the entire manuscript and the ivory covers during the exhibition, so that uniform conditions, necessary for fine reproduction, were obtained. Thus a foundation was laid for the reconstruction of the manuscript in this facsimile edition, which must now serve in place of a unified whole.
