Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin – Preu├čischer Kulturbesitz (SBB-PK), Ms.germ.qu. 2370
Our second exhibit, also a Berlin manuscript, was a gift to Christoph Mellinger by Count Wilhelm Werner von Zimmern, given in 1553 as a very detailed ex libris tells us. It also states that father and grandfather of the giver (Johann Werner and Werner von Zimmern) were responsible for producing the manuscript. Again, we have a manuscript made in the late 15th century, consisting of four separate fascicles (?), this time with clearly diverging interests.
Take a look at the list of texts contained in this manuscript.
