2. San Marino, Huntington Library, HM 00195
Description: - ff. iii + 159 (1 = contemp. flyleaf) + iii - Bound, s. XVIII, in vellum over pasteboards with 2 fore edge ties; title on the front cover "Beichtbüchlin __?___." - Written in Bavaria on the basis of the dialect and the origin of the woodcuts, in the middle of the fifteenth century; the dates 1433 and 1435 on ff. 53 and 70 are thought to be the dates of translation of the texts rather than the dates of transcription. Belonged to the Benedictine abbey of Nonnbergin the diocese of Salzburg, where it apparently bore the pressmark 26.A*.11 (not in the book). Prayers occasionally use feminine forms. Inscriptions include: on the front pastedown, "1623L" and an erasure; on f. iii verso, "Auss der Nunbergerisch Librerei" (now partially erased); on f. 1, the date 1584, the motto "Mein vertrauen steet in Cristo all __cropped___," and erased name and the title, s. XVIII, "Beichtbüchlin __?___"; on f. 159v, a count of the leaves. The book remained in Nonnberg until at least 1913 when it was studied by Gugenbauer (see above). Schreiber's work, dated 1926, still places the book in Nonnberg; however, Huntington Library records show that the book, acquired by Henry E. Huntington from Maggs, was accessioned in February 1926. - C. W. Dutschke with the assistance of R. H.
