In the so called Collection of Adolf Patera of the Library of the National Museum of Prague, under the shelf mark 1 H b 19, is a ma- nuscript fragment from about the first third of the 15th century. It contains an incompletely preserved handwritten note bequething books to the Cathedrale of St. Vitus. The donor is an unknown dean, perhaps of the same church. Among the – probably – thirteen listed volumes is Historia Scholastica by Peter Comestor, two passionals, some preaching literature and a breviar with a psalter.
