Porter, Dot, "Facsimile of LJS 212, Manuscript leaf from expense records" (2015). Schoenberg Institute for Manuscript Studies (SIMS): EBooks. 190.
Record of expenses for mills, mostly fulling mills, in Poligny in the Jura region in eastern France. Fulling mills were facilities for cleansing and felting woolen fabrics. The entries include payments for equipment (for example, a millstone, hammers for fulling, and nails), transport, and labor. The expenses on this leaf are entered under the heading Molins Giraut Barthoz. The entries are written in chancery script by a single hand in 2 columns of 63 lines, a wide column on the left for information about each expense and a narrow column on the right for the cost, ruled in lead.
