Bullarium Benedicti (et) Bullarii romani continuatio. Prati, In Typographia Aldine 1845-57.9 v. in 14.

The Tomassetti, or "Turin Bullarium" as it is called, was undertaken to replace the Mainardi edition with better printing, arrangement, and fuller inclusion of documents, but according to Herbert Thurston, "the additions are insignificant and the typographical errors are numerous. Moreover, among the documents added are included some whose authenticity is more than doubtful…Mainardi's Magnum Bullarium (E104) still remains the most accurate and practically useful" ("Bullarium," Catholic Encyclopedia, III, p. 50).
