Carpentarii, Georgius (1487-1531)
This chronicle, which came to the Basel University Library as part of the holdings of the Museum Faesch, contains two parts. The first part was written by Heinrich Arnoldi and deals with the foundation and development of the monastery until 1480; it is written in the form of a dialogue between the prior of the monastery and its patron saint, St. Margaret. This dialogue format, which Arnoldi employed in several of his writings, is unusual for historical content; it is abandoned in the second part. This second part, an autograph by Georg Carpentarius, continues the chronicle until 1526, that is, until shortly before the dissolution of the monastery in 1529.

Around 1520, Georg Carpentarius, the librarian of the Carthusian Monastery of Basel at the time, compiled a shelf list for the library. This catalog consists of two volumes, one each for the two library rooms of the Bibliotheca antiqua (AR I 2) and the Bibliotheca nova (AR I 3). The catalog for the Bibliotheca antiqua is preceded by the so-called “Informatorium bibliothecarii”, a guide for the librarian which instructs him in his tasks, among them the cataloguing and the care of the books as well as of the inventory. Bound into the front is a list of books that were donated to the Ittingen Charterhouse by the Carthusian Monastery of Basel in 1526.

The Repertorium of Urban Moser, librarian of the Carthusian Monastery of Basel, is a register of the library holdings of the Carthusian Monastery of Basel, alphabetically arranged by authors, titles and topics. Since Moser's successor Georg Carpentarius changed the shelfmark of various volumes, around 1520 he added a shelfmark concordance to the catalog, so that this alphabetical register could still be used. Thus the alphabetical register and the shelf lists (Basel, UB, AR I 2 and AR I 3) could be used in complement.
