[i-ii], 1-44pp. letterpress title with large wood-cut vignette of the Spanish Royal arms, text in Spanish, signed at the end with the paraph of Antonio Valdés, minister of the Spanish Navy. 1 small format (5 1/2 x 7 1/4 inches) hand-coloured engraving of the Real Compañia Maritima flag. Bound to style in vellum, manuscript lettering to spine. The printed version of the Spanish Royal decree establishing the Real Compañía Marítima (Royal Maritime Company) This fascinating work is beautifully printed, and includes a carefully engraved and coloured image of the flag that was granted to the Real Compañía Maritima. The text includes detailed instructions for what was to prove to be a hort-lived venture. The intention was that the Compañía Maritima should spear-head a revival of the Spanish fishing and whaling industries, which had foundered by the late 18th century. The Compañía Marítima was initially well-funded with its financial backers including the Spanish King himself, but was not a success and was dissolved early in the nineteenth century.
