ASV Indice 133, ff. 159r-165r, briefly lists summary titles of each volume. The index (compiled by Petrus DePretis after 1741) is basically informative but often fails to note copies. The index also uses terms as "regestrum" and "brevia" too inclusively and does not clearly note items which do not fit the basic thematic focus of each armarium, or which items are clearly from other offices. Therefore, the volume titles presented in this index are not exact. Some of the recent typed footnotes in this index are also inaccurate, the references below are correct.
ASV Indice 124, "Primo Sbozzo di Inventario di tutti i libri che sono nell'Archivio Segreto Vaticano" by Giovanni Bissaiga in 1672 provides more descriptive and accurate volume titles for some Armarium volumes. Select Armarium 35 volumes are listed on folios 231r-234v, 236r-237v, 238v-241r, 254v-256r, 292v, 304v, 306r, 310r, and 311rv. The titles from Indice 124 are sometimes provided in a footnote in ASV Indice 133, so researchers can see exactly how generic the titles in ASV Indice 133 are.
ASV Indice 114 by Felice Contolori provides excerpts from Arm. 35, v. 41 beginning on f. 54.
ASV Indice 71, Rubricelle di varii Papi da Gregorio X a Giulio II, [olim Arm. L 40A](ff. 20-38, 52-60, and 63-74) is a rubricelle to volumes 3-5. Entries proceed folio by folio and give the type of document, a summary of the business, and the folios.
ASV Indice 2, "Indici di diverse materie fragmenta, Tom. 2," is a number of different indexes which have been bound together at some point. ASV Indice 2, ff. 82-127v, "Index librorum trium privilegiorum sanctae Romanae acclesie collectorum ab Urbano de Flisco ... anno 1734," provides contents for Armarium 35, volumes 3-5. Place names are in the margins and the entries note the type of document or person, summarize the business, the date, and the folio. This rubricelle appears to go through the volumes document by document, but full comprehensiveness cannot be determined at this point. ASV Indice 2, f. 536, "Tabula huius Libri," also contains a rubricelle to Arm. 35, volume 4 which lists the type of business, a summary of the document, and the date.
ASV Indice 110, "Index librorum 112 Diversorum scripturarum confecta Rmo. Dmo. Felice Contelorio et unitorum per me Joannen Bissaigham & fuit compactus an 1694," [olim Arm 58, n. 41] provides access to Arm. 35, volumes 3 (ASV Indice 110, ff. 216-226v), 5 (ff. 227-238v), 14 (ff. 240-252v), 16 (285-286v), 17 (ff. 287-289v), and 25 (ff. 290-290v) on the pages indicated. Entries for volumes 3-5, and 14 note the dioceses in the margins and proceed folio by folio listing the following elements: place, type of business (e.g., venditio), recipient, summary of the document, date, cost (occasionally), and folio number. Although this does provide more descriptive detail concerning the contents of the volume, it should not be assumed to be a complete index. The entries for volumes 16, 17, and 25 are very abbreviated and are more like modern indices. These indices are organized alphabetically according to place and give a sketchy summary and sometimes a folio number.
