Der Dom zu Hildesheim. Zweiter Theil (Dritter Theil).
Hildesheim, ?in Commission der Gerstenbergschen Buchhandlung? 1840. - The two rare published text parts of a larger intended monograph on the mediaeval cathedral of Hildesheim in North Germany. Curiously, part 1, which would no doubt have discussed the cathedral?s history and architecture, was never published, but part 2, which discusses a wide range of art treasures kept in the cathedral, is extremely detailed and scholarly, and provides much incidental information about the cathedral?s past. Part 3 provides biographical accounts of St.Bernward and St.Godehard, successive Bishops of Hildesheim in the first half of the eleventh century. A folio plate volume, issued to accompany part 2, is absent (as often). 8vo. 2 vols (all published). (2) + xiv + 272pp ; (8) + 124pp. Contemporary full panelled red morocco, gilt, all edges gilt. A good set, without ownership inscriptions but from the library of the Kings of Hannover (with circular paper labels in top compartments of each spine carrying mid-nineteenth century ink library numbers) [Attributes: Hard Cover]
