Second donation register of the confraternity of St Anne of the Hamburg merchants with Iceland, which contains donations from 1629-1657. Different than the first donation register, donations were mainly made by the eldermen and brothers of the confraternity, and only a few from ships returning from Shetland (last one in 1644) and a few other places.
