The Jörg Breu Draftbook (Cod.Ⅰ.6.2º.4) is a 16th century German manuscript created around 1545.[1] It currently rests in the holdings of the Universitätsbibliothek Augsburg in Augsburg, Germany. The manuscript consists of three parts. The first consists of several pages of grappling by Gregor Erhart, repeated from his earlier MS E.1939.65.354 but enhanced with descriptive text. The second section seems to consist of the original draft of Kunstlicher stuck Kämpffens Ringens und Werffens, written by an unknown author and painted by Jörg Breu der Junger. The third section is also by Jörg Breu, consisting of preliminary sketches (sometimes with captions) for his work on Paulus Hector Mair's three compendia.
