book on 15th century Nuremberg

The book Endres Tuchers Baumeisterbuch der Stadt Nürnberg: (1464 - 1475) gives a description of the city of Nuremberg from the point of view of the people in charge of maintaining it. It enumerates for example the water pipes (roren) and the different fountains and gives how many buckets each fountain has.
Unmitigated awesomeness.
