German captions, no further text. The manuscript was created during a trip (Imperial embassy?) to Constantinople, possibly further travel to Jerusalem, Egypt, Crete, Ragusa - the sequence of images does not convey a clear route. The codex contains both traditional motifs, which appear in other costume books of the time, as well as independent, especially cultural ones.
