Manuscript SummaryDraft of a third part of the handwritten manuscript catalog by Abbey Librarian P. Franz Weidmann (1774−1843; Abbey Librarian 1836−1843), for the manuscripts no. 690 to 1399 of the Abbey Library of St. Gall. Weidmann’s manuscript descriptions are comprehensive and detailed, but, according to Johannes Duft in his 1983 history of the cataloguing of the manuscripts of the St. Gall Abbey Library, “unausgeglichen” (unbalanced). The descriptions often contain pages of remarks regarding the content of the codices, which is considered in great detail. The manuscripts are usually described as follows: shelfmark, format, writing material, number of pages, and a the end the “character” of the manuscript and its dating. P. Franz Weidmann was able to complete a clean copy of the first two volumes of his manuscript catalog; he passed away prior to starting the third part, so that this exists only as a draft in Cod. Sang. 1405.
