Memoires & instructions que les Subdeleguez de Messieurs les Commissaires Generaux establis par le Roy en ceste ville de Paris suiveront, s'il leur plaist, pour l'execution de la Commission de l'Edict des Permissions de tenir HOSTELLERIES, CABARETS & TAVERNES en ce Royaume, Declarations, lettres & arrest du feu Roy, de sa Majeste a present regnant, & nommement l'Arrest donne a Follambray le neufiesme iour de Ianvier mil cinq cents quartrevingt seize [i.e. 9 January 1596]
S.l. (Paris): s.n., 1596. ONLY EDITION. IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. 12mo. COLLATION: A4 + [B]2 = 6 ff., COMPLETE. Paginated [1], 2-11, [1] pp. (final blank).With large woodcut culs-de-lamp on A1. UNBOUND as issued, with the edges untrimmed. Final two pages with discoloration along early fold, affecting three lines of text with loss of a few letters. Preserved in a fitted cloth case by Cloverleaf Studio No other copy seems to be recorded. * Extremely early Royal edicts and regulations for Cabarets, Taverns, and Hotels, with special consideration given to issues of taxation. Herein are precise tax figures and detailed methods of payment (including penalties for non-payment) toward taxes on food and wine. Of particular interest: the capacity of Judges to rule on various crimes committed by the proprietors of said businesses, as well as the functions of the "Huissiers" and "Sergents" (two of the least-important officeholders appointed by the King). * Our pamphlet must be closely related to the unique Royal Act (Folembray: January 17, 1596) Edict, held by the Bibliotheque Nationale de France, namely the "Lettres de jussion rendues pour l'execution du reglement donne sur le fait des hôtelleries, cabarets et tavernes et pour le recouvrement de la finance de ceux qui n'ont pas paye leurs taxes ou qui ont refuse de le faire" (S.l., n.d.) -- the BnF example is paginated "17-23 pp." (sic) and therefore must have been extracted from a larger work, whereas ours is obviously a singular publishing effort. * In outstanding original condition.
