I hope theyve installed a nitrogen blanketing device that kicks on when a fire is detected. Such a collection is irreplaceable.

Is there an inventory list of works lost?

I suppose they did the first.

The answer to your second question is here:

Catalogue of lost and damaged books of the Herzogin Anna Amalia Bibliothek

(Not included are about 10, 000 books, which had only been catalogised in file-card boxes (card indexes).)

And what a great work they've done: 58 craftsmen, for instance, repaired (and prepared) the wooden walls, bookshelfs etc - the originals! - and then they put the new paint (made by original, old recipes) on it: nothing to be seen from that work now.

(Only 250 per day are allowed ot go inside - until December, at least. And of course no photographing, but I'll post some oics from outside tonight.)
