Accounts of the properties of Baron (Freiherr) Johann Maximilian Preysing (title page, recto of leaf preceding f. 1), produced by Johann (or Joannes) Baptista Leidl, Doctor of Law (beider Rechten Doctorn), with the collaboration (im Beijsein) of Bernhardt Vogl, Gregori Kray, and Hanss (or Joannes) Christoph Schwarz (all 4 names, with full titles, f. iii verso). The properties, constituting as an administrative unit a Hofmark, were known collectively as Alten-Preysing, or Kronwinkel, the name of the family residence near Landshut, in the region Niederbayern (Lower Bavaria) of Bavaria, Germany. The rubric for each property includes the name of an individual, and sometimes a locality name. Each entry includes a list of yearly assessments, with such recurring categories as Gült, Grundtgült, Wissgült, Stifftgelt (fee related to leasing the land?), Schreibgelt (administrative fee), and Masswein (quantities of wine). Many entries include a major heading for either: Traiddienst (tribute in grains), often given as Khorn, Waitz (wheat); Gersten (barley), and Habern (oats?); or Claindienst, often given as Gäns (geese), Hiener (chickens), and Air (eggs). Some entries have a narrative part, including mentions of debts; and at the end of each is a summation of income. Following the entries are notes written in a different hand, presumably relating to the review of the accounts. A section at the end of the book (f. 156r-167v) includes a general narrative (f. 158r-165r) that apparently explains how, when and by whom the different steps in producing the accounts were completed; it seems to be signed by Vogel (f. 165r), whose name is legible on one of the 4 seals affixed to the last page (f. 166v). After the narrative are individual signed statements from Kray (f. 165r-v), Schwarz (f. 165v), and Leidl (f. 166v).
