1525 Carta Executoria Page (letter Patent)

1525 Carta Executoria page (letter patent). From Carta Executoria, a Pedimento del Consejo de la Villa de Ceveco de la Torre..., written at Valladolid, Spain in 1525. Folio ms on vellum. Spanish language text in formal Rotunda script in brown ink with initial strokes in contrasting colors, primarily yellow, the whole encased within red borders and line guides extending into the wide blank margins. The Carta is a form of Letters Patent peculiar to Spain. This ms, dated 15 Feb. 1525, is the judgement of a land dispute, in which the town Council of Cevico de la Torre finds that certain lands, in Monte Derrasedo belong to the town and not the claimants Don Rodrigo Manual and his mother Dona Juana de la Cerda. Although this leaf dates to a period decades after the introduction of printing, it is entirely handwritten. It was in Spain that the tradition of ms. illumination persisted the longest in Europe, with hte famous large format Antiphonals still being hand copied as late as the first half of the 18th century..
