Dom Bernard de Montfaucon's Bibliotheca bibliothecarum manuscriptorum nova…

This digital edition will be based on the handwritten notes that were compiled for the collected inventories of manuscript libraries published in 1739. These notes, which are written in different hands, are part of the collections formerly held by the Maurists and contain a great deal of information that is not included in the original printed edition.
