Large heavy folio. New York: George Braziller, 1967. Large heavy folio, 478pp, including 54 color plates. Original quarter-vellum over red cloth boards, in fine condition in slightly worn publisher's slipcase. § Limited to 1000 copies, this copy with the separate pamphlet of commentary often missing. “This complete facsimile of the Lorsch Gospels includes six color engravings from photographs by Robert Braunmuller, and many  color-printed plates, though most of the production consists of high-quality monochrome plates... first written in 810AD, the four [since separated] parts which comprise the Lorsch Gospels were [re]united in the Coronation Hall of the Holy Roman Empire in Aachen, Germany on the occasion of the 1965 exhibition of the Council of Europe ‘Charlemagne, His Achievements and Influence.’ The respective owners co-operated to photograph the entire manuscript and the ivory covers during the exhibition. Thus a foundation was laid for the reconstruction of the manuscript in this fine facsimile edition, which must serve in the place of a unified whole.” (Inventory #: 110441)
