    Scope & contentSummary Translation

    A book about the water and windmills of the Weinviertel in Lower Austria. It begins with a description of types of mills and how they work, and the different uses they are put to. It goes on to look at the role of millers, their rights and obligations and their changing legal situation, and their reputation in story and poetry, and then at their daily work. The final part details the architecture of the mills, including decorations with details of specific examples. It lists the watermills of the district with the streams they stand on, and ends with a 1644 edict on the work of millers, including apprentices and paid employees. The book is richly illustrated with photos. It has a dust jacket.
