Most of us who are fans of the High Middle Ages have undoubtedly seen this image from the Jungenfrauenspiegel, also known by its Latin name, the Speculum Virginum. What I was wondering is, are there any more images like it from the original manuscript? And if so, where can I find them?

Take a trip to Trier after arranging to examine the manuscript.

A Google Image search for "Trier Jungfrauenspieghel" return several images, but no others with armor.
