I have now scanned the 1981 facsimile reproduction of this manuscript, and
Lubomir has kindly uploaded it to Archive.org. The link is:

> First, thank you to Ryan Conlon for finding the listing of this manuscript
> that I could not find in the catalogue of the Nepalese-German Manuscript
> Cataloging Project, and for providing a link to it. This is very helpful.
> Next, as I suspected, there is only one old manuscript of the
> *Sarvatathāgatatattvasaṃgraha*, not two. Daisy Cheung made this clear in
> an off-list reply to me. Thank you to her for that. She then provided
> additional information about it:
> "For a new description of the Sanskrit MS of the STTS available see
> Tanemura 2020: (75)ff.
> Tamenura, Ryugen 種村隆元. 2020.
> ‘Saravatathāgatatattvasaṃgrahaの説くāveśa儀礼—金剛界大マンダラ章「成就が生じるための印に関する智」校訂テキストおよび和訳注—’.
> 智山学報 69: 71–97.

> It made no sense to me that there would be two very old manuscripts of
> this text, both discovered independently in the same library, first by
> Tucci in 1932 and then by David Snellgrove and John Brough in 1956. That
> was one reason for my inquiry, the other being a wish to obtain scans of
> this manuscript. The description of this manuscript by Tucci as being in
> late Gupta characters, and the description of this manuscript by Horiuchi
> as being in Siddham characters, led de Jong in his review (cited in my
> opening post) to assume two different manuscripts.
> It is now clear that the manuscript reproduced in facsimile by Lokesh
> Chandra and David Snellgrove in 1981 is the same as the manuscript that was
> microfilmed by the Nepal-German Manuscript Preservation Project listed at
> the link provided by Ryan Conlon. If no one has a scan of this manuscript,
> now almost impossible to obtain from Kathmandu, or even a scan of the 1981
> published facsimile of it, I will try to scan this facsimile and post it.
> Thanks and best regards,
