Popis In the Brno Augustinian Eremites monastery, founded in the 1450s by Margrave Jan Jindřich of Luxembourg, was around 1750 the Baroque reconstruction of the monastery completed, including a fabulous library. A collection of medieval notated manuscripts, music prints from the 16th and 17th centuries, treatises and several manuscript codices from the 17th century was most probably placed together in one section under the signature Q. The volumes preserved today are easily identifiable by their uniformly arranged spines of coarse brown-black paper (in some cases, the sheets are covered with this paper) and a lighter paper label with a title written in red ink. Part of this label symbolises the collection by means of the letters Q ST, whereby Q served as a sign of the shelf and ST as a sign of the convent (Sancti Thomae). They are currently stored in four institutions: the Moravian Museum, the Moravian Library, the Moravian Archives, and the Library of the Augustinian monastery at Staré Brno.
