This book systematically teaches how to read Gothic script in old German records. It has examples of the most common types of records, with images. Each one is partially transcribed, translated, and analyzed to show how to extract vital information from similar records. It also has chapters on Latin and French, which can be useful for certain areas and time periods. My only quibble is that the Gothic script is mostly printed in a computer font—easy when you're first learning, but quite different from the wide variety of handwriting you'll encounter in actual records.
