'Turnierbuch. Ritterspiele gehalten von Kaiser Friedrich III. und Kaiser Maximilian I. in den Jahren 1489 - 1511 - BSB Cod.icon. 398' is online at MDZ. [Link updated July 2013]
~(Tournament book. Knight games held by Emperor Frederick III & Emperor Maximilian I between 1489 and 1511)
The bright, colourful tunics and horse covers make this anonymous manuscript from the mid-1550s an eye-catching delight. There is background information available for the keen (in German) [translation]. All of the above images (which are about half or less of the total) have been modestly spot/stain cleaned.
