Sumptuary regulations for betrothals and weddings (Hochzeitsordnung) issued by the city of Nuremberg, covering such details as how the announcement of the engagement (Lautmerung) should be made; how much the musicians should be paid; what guests may be invited; and what kind of food and wine may be served. The form of the regulations given in the codex includes an amendment made in April 1511 (f. 7v). An amendment concerning the permissibility of the bridegroom giving the bride a maiden-ring worth 10 gulden, which became part of the code in or before 1526, has been written in subsequently, or as an afterthought, in a similar hand (f. 4r).
