SEPAN quantos esta carta vieren, como yo [...]
Mexico, 1585 Extraordinary 16th-century Mexican carta de poder, or power of attorney, most probably printed by the bookseller/printer from Salamanca, Pedro Balli. Undated, but likely produced between 1574 and 1599, Balli's fluorit. Headed by an impressive historiated initial unrecorded by Carpenter, the unused, 37-line document---uttered in a single sentence---is a precise snapshot of the forensic workings of Mexican society of the period, and is surprisingly similar in text and tone to the modern American instrument. 16th-century Mexican printing is vanishingly rare in the trade, legal material especially so. No other copies known, either in libraries or bibliographies. Folio broadside, worn at edges. Paper toned. Dampstaining. Two closed horizontal tears, touching printing, without loss. Provenance: Dr. Michael W. Mathes.
