The collection of Latin codices (Codices latini monacenses - Clm), with a good 17,300 volumes, is the largest in number and, in addition to the German and Greek manuscripts, also the Bavarian State Library’s most significant collection of occidental manuscripts. Around 11,000 manuscripts date from the Middle Ages. The order of the manuscripts (according to their provenance) and the associated sequence of signatures can be traced back to the work of librarian Johann Andreas Schmeller (1785-1852).
