A lecture registration form for the classicist August Dühr (1806-96), confirming his lecture attendance from the winter semester 1824/25 to the summer semester 1827. Each entry bears a signed comment by the professor. Dühr attended Hegel's lecture on the "Philosophy of History", and Hegel states: "den fleissigen Besuch bezeugt Hegel 9/4 27" ("certifying diligent attendance / Hegel / 9 April 1827").
