L. Sander, Paläographisches zu den Sanskrithandschriften der Berliner Turfansammlung, (Wiesbaden 1968), pp. 7-21.  This is excerpted in Tatsami Tarai’s 2010 dissertation:

In Eli Franco’s The Spitzer Manuscript: The Oldest Philosophical Manuscript in Sanskrit (Vienna, 2004), pp. 1-2, he mentions that Grünwedel (in Altbuddhistische Kultstätten in Chinesisch-Turkistan) disputed von le Coq’s own account of the discovery (in Von Land und Leuten in Ostturkistan, pp. 82 ff.).  Grünwedel can be consulted here:

Does anyone happen to know of a detailed description of the
circumstances of discovery of Sanskrit and Tocharian manuscripts in the
"Rotkuppelraum" at Qyzyl by A. von le Coq? (This is only very cursorily
described in his "Buried Treasures of Chinese Turkestan", p.126 of the
English version.)

Also, is there a convenient comprehensive list of the manuscripts that
came from this cave?
