Abstract

Mathiesen emphasizes the importance of bibliographical description, particularly of Old Cyrillic manuscripts and printed books. He describes the "individual components of an ideal synchronic description of a codex-form book" into a "formal" part of the description and the "textual" part as a recommendation of the structure of manuscript and old printed book descriptions.
