A list of the 6,267 titles from the library of Prof. Gustav Grober: Mss. codices.
Gustav Grober, Professor of Romance Philology at the University of Strassburg, was a Romance scholar and collector. The main strength of his collection was Provencal and Italian literature and linguistics, though there were materials on all Romance languages and dialects, and volumes on classical, English, and Germanic works. His collection also contains a large number of dissertations and other studies, which comprise the vast majority of pamphlets and brochures on Romance subjects published in Germany from 1880-1910.
