- Walters Ms. W.524, Gospel Book
- Eusebius, of Caesarea, Bishop of Caesarea, ca. 260-ca. 340. and Cosmas, Indicopleustes, active 6th century
- Greek, Ancient (t0 1453)
- This is a relatively early copy of the Gospels in the original Greek, remarkable on account of its calligraphic handwriting, illustrations, and prefatory material, the latter including Gospel prefaces by the sixth-century Cosmas Indicopleustes. It contains four full-page miniatures. The volume is now incomplete and misbound. Four miniatures in the collection of the late Dr. Seigfried Amberg-Herzog, Switzerland, were taken from this manuscript.
