"Printed with the most up-to-date techniques, and the photography of almost all of the codex´s 78 pages is entirely new. Included with the full color Graz facsimile of the codex, which is in its original screen-like form, is a supplementary 135-page book that contains commentaries by Helmut Deckert and Ferdinand Anders on the history and early editions of the manuscript. The book also has 42 pages of illustrations, including the codex as it was printed in black and white by the Villacorta´s in 1930, and examples of the color reproductions of Ernst Forstmann and Lord E.
