- Hi Michael
Sure. I'll be glad to send you a copy. I'll break it up in several
pieces so that each is not so large. (We use a 12.8Mp camera). As
someone posted later in the thread, there is a book that you can ILL as well.

"..Um..Something strange happened to me this morning."
"Was it a dream where you see yourself standing in sort
of Sun God robes on a pyramid with a thousand naked
women screaming and throwing little pickles at you?"
"Why am I the only person that has that dream?"
I found an interesting document among my 'collection' that mentiones
what we would call an engagement ring. it dates to February 17, 1476
and was issued in a village of Vesina, in the parish of Jugo, in the
bishopric of Trident, in the castle of Henry (in present-day Carinthia
in Austria, I think)
my loose translation is as folows:
'Odorik, sun of William of Brezio, an imperial public notary in
Trident, makes a nuptial contract for Paul, sun of the late John
Alouisia of Petra plana near Trident, and a bride Dorothea, dauther of
Henry de Jugo. Before the notary, bride and groom have declared to wed
each other, and the groom has put on a bride's finger a golden ring as
a sign of true and valid matrimony. The father gave the bride a dowry
of 500 florins, the groom gave her 'jutrna' (husband's present to his
wife on the morning after the first night spent together, the morning
after the wedding) of 150 florins.'
