There are books about Moravia that are similar to the Sommer books and
published at about the same time.
They were written by Gregor Wolny. Some of the have Conrad Schenkl as
Die Markgrafschaft Maehren: Topographisch statistisch und historisch
Type: German : Book
Publisher: Bruenn, In Commission der L.W. Seidel'schen Buchhandlung,
There are seven volumes by Gregor Wolny, one for each district of Moravia
and two for the Brünn district.
I have found one at Google books but
I could not get to page one to get the name of the district..
Page 6 seems to be the first one but it goes up to 720 or higher.

trades represented by the population.
There is a map on the Internet that would go with this book. It is a map of
the Iglau district up to 1849 at Karel Kysilka's website. All of the
Herrschaft are outlined.
I did a quick look at pages that preceeded the ones about the Royal city and
it looks like a history of the district or maybe of the city. I saw a lot
of names and dates mentioned. This kind of history may provide data for
searches for manorial records in Czech archives.
