    Hello
    I would like to have your help dating this Codex Manesse print. I took pictures under the USB microscope as an aid. 1.jpg 3.jpg Snapshot_20200604_1.JPG Snapshot_20200604_8.JPG Snapshot_20200604_3.JPG

    not possible without unframing.
    there were already facsimiles made from the original Codex at the end of the 19th century .
    best is to check the Heidelberg listing one after one till you find - at least - the title of what you have and then research from thereon.

    Ok, then I don't think it is from the 1925 version, because that one measures
    372 x 250 mm.

    Thanks Frid. The title is "Graf Kraft von Toggenburg". Is printed on an hard paper. In some parts of the picture it seems handpainted (the gold colour).
    The size is 36 x 27 cm.
