Dear Fritz,
 Regarding your wish I cannot help you. But I have a question and I
hope you can help.
 I am working as a librarian at the University library of Tuebingen,
Germany <> as librarian responsible for
Drawidian and tribal languages of South Asia and for minority
languages as. e.g. American Indian languages.
We have at our library a book with the title:
 <<<Evangeliarium epistolarium et lectionarium
 Aztecum sive Mexicanum
  ex antiquo codice mexicano nuper reperto
    depromptum cum praefatione interpretatione adnotationibus
glossario edidit
   Bernardinus Biondelli.
 Mediolani: Typis Jos. Bernardoni Q.m Johannis, MDCCCLVIII>>>
  XLIX, 574 p.  4°  (h 34 cm, b 26)
 Praface in Latin, text in Nahuatl and Latin.
 Is this a rare book?
  I should be thankful if you could tell me something more about it.
