I don't know much about the manuscript source. It's a poem about good manners 
at table, attributed to Hartmann von Aue and probably only preserved because 
of that. Conventionally dated to before 1210, it is considered the earliest 
German language source on the matter and seems to have been influential in 
the later (very productive) genre. 

Doesn't seem like there is an English rendering. At least, not in our library 
system here.
