The MS XIX.17-3 is a German fencing manual created by Hans Talhoffer some time between 1446 and the creation of the Thott manuscript in 1459. The original currently rests in the private collection of the Königsegg-Aulendorf family in Königseggwald, Germany. This manuscript may possibly have been commissioned by the very Luithold von Königsegg who is featured in several of Talhoffer's works.
The MS XIX.17-3 seems to have remained in the collection of the Königsegg family since its creation by Hans Talhoffer in the mid-fifteenth century.
