Nr. 1 is the main decription and consists of the nr. 2 and 3 and therefore no library or nr of leaves is dated.
Nr. 2 was formerly in Dresden, Sächs. Landesbibl. (Brought from Russia and afterward as war booty back?).
For comparable solution of description and NT mss numbering, see e.g. Object ID's 30435; 30566; 30609.
435: 285 leaves in the Universitätsbibliothek, Leiden and 576: 1 leaf in the library of the Duke of Norfolk, Arundel Castle (stolen?)
566: 121 leaves in the Russische Nationalbibliothek, St. Petersburg and 2149: 1 leaf of the same manuscript in the same! library.

> Now, there's noting untypical of a manuscript NT being in two volumes: Gospels in the first and Acts & Epistles in the second (which would rarely add Revelation); usually the thickness of a 1-volume NT would make it unmanageable. One notable exception, Aleph, has an unusually high number of columns and lines per page--but it's in so many pieces today, who's to say in how many volumes it was originally bound? But 252/464 is the first case of a 2-volume NT I have found in which the separately bound volumes are given separate GA-#'s.
