History, Law - Quantity: 1 - Book

A volume in folio (27 x 19.1 cm) XVIII sheets, including the title page, with imperial coat of arms engraved in wood by Juan de Vingles at the centre. Printing in Gothic font, large xylographic initials.
Modern Roman-style parchment binding.

First edition, very rare. Martín Abad, in Imprenta en Alcalá, only records three known copies, two of them in the National Library of Spain (both mutilated, one of them without cover) and a unique complete copy in the Library of Santa Cruz in Valladolid.

The text of the ordinances was dated in Alcalá on 3th March 1543 and sent by Emperor Charles V and his Council to the governors of Castile and León for its observance and execution.

Clean copy, with good margins and some handwritten marginal annotations from the 17th century, unfortunately with FACSIMILE cover.

Palau, 202561; Martín Abad, La Imprenta en Alcalá, 332; Catalina García, 189.

Full title on the title page: ORDENANÇAS cerca de lo que han de hazer y guardar los alcaldes mayores y jueces de residencia de los tres adela[n]tamie[n]tos de Burgos y Leo[n] y Palencia y los escrivanos y abogados y otros officiales que siguen sus audiencias. Con privilegio imperial.
