Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin – Preußischer Kulturbesitz (SBB-PK), Ms.germ.qu. 2370
We know the book was a gift – a gift from one noble collector to another. Someone, the giver or the recipient, has done his homework: All the Minnereden were read and, in the 16th century, compared to an existing collection. In some instances a 16th century hand has written corrections on the margin, and it is most likely the same hand that put in other remarks.
Most of the Minnereden in this manuscript have titles, and alongside some of these titles (but not all!) are written remarks like: Den hab ich. Das hon ich, Ich habs – grammatical variations of ‘I’ve got this’ (which probably means ‘I have got this text in other manuscripts in my library’).
