The reproduction derives from the Ansel Verlag edition which was based on the copy in the Königlichen Bibliothek in Berlin and the copy in the Standischen Landes- bibliothek in Fulda, considered by authorities to be the most beautifully illuminated of the 47 copies known to exist." Colophon.
The text pages have been printed by lithography and the illuminated pages by sheetfed gravure. This ed. is limited to 1000 numbered sets, of which 996 are for sale. Library has #397.
