[Madrid, 1744. 6 leaves. Folio. Dbd. Contemporary manuscript annotations on top of first page and in margins of text. Old folds. Moderate dampstaining in top margins. A good copy. A rare printed decree by Philip V, King of Spain, regarding the reconstruction of the Casa de Moneda in Santiago following the earthquake that devastated that city in 1730. Detailed orders concerning the construction and operation of the Casa de Moneda and related matters regarding the processing of gold are also provided. It is noted that the reconstruction of the Santiago mint will ensure that the gold will not need to be sent to Lima for processing, as was the case after the earthquake. Dated Oct. 1, 1743, the decree was printed in Madrid for distribution to officials in the Council of the Indies and in Santiago. A printed note (dated Madrid, March 22, 1744) at the bottom of the text indicates that the text is a copy of the original which remains with the Secretary of Peru. A rare printed decree regarding the institution of the Casa de Moneda in Santiago. Not in EUROPEAN AMERICANA. OCLC records only a single copy, at the Chilean National Library. MEDINA (BHC) 365. OCLC 55278441.
