I found this image on Pinterest but I can't seem to identify the manuscript it appears in. Can anybody identify the source? My first thought was the Hausbuch von Schloss Wolfegg but I could not find there, besides, the style here is different, the characters in the Hausbuch Wolfegg illustrations are more animated.

It is from a copy of Ulrich von Richtental's "Chronicle of the Council of Constance", held in Vienna... I have posted other clips from it in the forum in the past, can't recall if this is one of mine originally! Wink

Thank you. I'm hunting for data on 15th century civilian clothing, armour, scabbard suspensions, sword types etc. I've found a few excellent sources but this one has eluded me for a long time. Just judging from that one picture this book seems promising. Is there an online facsimile?

Found it, Codex 3044, Folio 230:

They moved the thing to a new URL, most of the links to the facsimile even in their own catalogue are dead. Most of the images are of ecclesiastical proceedings but there are some fantastic drawings of soldiers and common people. Judging from the coats of arms in the book and that flag, these guys must be the 'negotiating team' of the Archbishop of Köln.
