If you'd like a facsimile of the original, it's at:
David Wilson has notes about this in his book _101 Italian Dances: A
He reads the "A" sequence as 2 pive and 1 doppio, the "B" sequence as
the same, and then for the away-and-return: _3_ contrapassi, _1_ rev,
return with 2 pive and 1 doppio.
Now this A and B have more music than most recordings, which have a
half-measure at the end of the phrase. For away-and-return, I suppose
you might guess a contrapasso takes the time of a piva.
He doesn't discuss the Nuernberg source in his comments.
