The publication entitled Inventory of Manuscripts provides information on numerous topics of cultural and historical interest from a wide variety of eras. With the cataloging of this treasure trove of books, the Waldeck cultural heritage is not only preserved for the region, but also made accessible to research in a fundamental way for the first time. Some pieces of the Arolsen manuscript collection are searchable via the online archive of the University of Kassel ORKA .

The publication is available at a price of 19 euros through bookstores, the Waldeck Historical Society or the Princely Court Library in Bad Arolsen.
