MSS. German (Germ.)



Introduction

The shelfmark MS. Germ. was adopted for miscellaneous German-language manuscripts acquired from 1887 onwards, as part of the classification system introduced by the then Bodley Librarian E. W. B. Nicholson (see R. W. Hunt in Summary Catalogue, vol. I pp. xlv-xlvi). The manuscripts are subdivided by size, from 'a' (largest, 20" and over) to 'g' (smallest, 5" and under).
