Of course, the actual name in English for this manuscript among literary and art historians is 'Manesse Codex' or even "Manasseh Codex". This is not such a 'special' ms, by the way - most of the poems are separately preserved. This is just the one with pictures, which is why I have prints from it, but then I'm an art historian. I think some library in Switzerland owns it, now. MichaelTinkler
