With regard to the provenance here, as generally in the form of manuscripts of the BOD, the princely collections of books in the courts in Munich (about 30) and Mannheim (about 60) the basis of the Fund. Some of the oldest pieces are already in the original state of the year 1558 by Duke Albrecht V. of Bavaria, founded in Munich court library. This is especially the jewels of his order book Cod.icon. 429 and other works, but also 18 Volumes from the 1571 by Duke Albrecht V.
