If I remember correctly, I obtained photographs of a manuscript of the Śaunakīya Caturādhyāyikā from the Chambers' Collection from Staatsbibliothek Prussischer Kulturbesitz in Berlin.  This happened probably some thirty years ago, but I am sure you can contact them to find out about the current availability of manuscript-photographs.

I am sorry.  I only know the history of the collection.  I have had occasion to read former Fort William College Sanskrit MSS in the Asiatic Society in Calcutta, but not Chambers or any other MSS in Berlin.

Best wishes for success,

Thank you, Rosane. Would you, or any other list member, happen to know who would be the best person in Berlin to contact for help with locating a particular MS from the Chambers collection? A web search left me clueless.

The collection of Sir Robert Chambers was acquired by the Berlin Library
in 1843.

After the closing of Fort William College, most of its collection of
manuscripts remained in Calcutta in the collections of the Asiatic Society.
