After a substantial introduction in Latin he divides the materials into different types of documents: encyclopedic and bibliographic, lexical, grammatical, metrical, rhetorical, and epistolary texts. Anthologies and poetic texts are included as well. Historical documents are divided into the subcategories of world history, Mecca, Medina, and Jerusalem, Syria, Egypt, Mauritanian and other Balkan regions. Biographical and cosmographical texts, scientific and mathematical codices also constitute a large part of this material. Religious texts are also included: prophetic, doctrinal, magical, and ethical materials all appear. A set of indices help to locate specific topics addressed in this wide variety of materials. An unsurpassed catalogue of the holdings in Uppsala, this reference is now once again accessible to scholars and general readers alike.

Carl Johan Tornberg (1807-1877) was a Swedish Orientalist. He studied theology and oriental languages at the University of Uppsala, and also studied in Paris. He became Professor of Oriental Languages at the University of Lund. He wrote widely across his many areas of interest.

Catalogue of the Oriental Manuscripts of the Saxon State Library at the Dresden University of Technology

Catalogus Codicum Manuscriptorum Orientalium Bibliothecae Regiae Dresdensis
ISBN: 978-1-59333-904-3
This historic catalogue documents the oriental manuscripts of what is now the Saxon State Library at the Dresden University of Technology. Formerly the Royal Library of Dresden, this repository houses numerous manuscripts from antiquity. Catalogued before the tragic bombing of Dresden during WWII, this historic record, written in Latin, briefly describes the nearly 600 documents in the collections of Dresden and Guelferbytan at that time. Valued more as a historical memento, this catalogue provides a sense of importance of the manuscripts housed in the library of the early 19th century capital of Saxony. Adding to the utility of his register are the indices to the codices included with the collection.
