  • Commentary (German) by Anders, Ferdinand; Deckert, Helmut
  • This is a partial facsimile of the original document, Codex Dresdensis: the facsimile doesn't attempt to replicate the format or the look-and-feel of the original document.
The facsimile (fully colored) is the complete reproduction of the whole original document in its original size. The pages are represented on a larger white background. Commentary volume (135 pp.) on the history and early editions of the manuscript, also including 42 pages of illustrations. These feature the codex as it was printed in black and white by the Villacorta´s in 1930, together with examples of the color reproductions of Ernst Forstmann and Lord E. K. Kingsborough.
