The Augsburger Baumeisterbücher document the income and expenditure of the imperial city of Augsburg in the period between 1320 and 1800. The Baumeister not only recorded columns of numbers in their books, but also drew a vivid picture of life in their city thanks to some peculiarities in the accounting techniques of the time.

The project uses LOD.ACADEMY's permalink service for persistent references to folios, entries and lines of the text transcription.
