Starting to think that I've found something really interesting

Remember that obscure book of privileges that I mentioned a couple of posts back?

Well, I finished transcribing the privilege I was working on, and I thought I'd see if I could find some book or article or a even an entry in a reference book to give me some background on it, and there's nothing. There's a book with the same title for a different location that is a music manuscript.  And there's another one that has something to do with plants.  But absolutely nothing out there on the book I'm working on. 

On the one hand, this is frustrating, as I'd like to know a bit more.

On the other, there's that really cool feeling that maybe I've stumbled onto something that almost nobody even knows exists, and it's a really big something.

There's likely a doctoral thesis from some Blargistan university floating out there somewhere.  And there are a couple of people I can ask.  But I'm still quasi-giddy about this whole thing.
