|Book Title:||Collection of old Belgian documents and acts - 18th century|
N/A - Collection of Belgian juridical and notarial documents and acts. c. 1755? (Re)bound with endpapers in a cloth hardcover. A total of 133 leaves, all numbered (= 266 pages). Dimensions approx. 32.5 × 21 cm. Weight approx. 1,0 kg. Often with small decorations in ink at the top of the leaves. (Photo)copy of the first page on the front cover.
This book (probably) contains a collection of handwritten documents, deeds, etc. from / for / made in the presence of the High Court in Liege (Belgium). There is a will, and, mostly, many (monthly) reports. Several documents start with: ‘Oeuvres et renovation faites devant nous la Haute Justice de Liege’. The years mentioned differ: most documents seem to date from c. 1700-1720, some years mentioned are earlier (c. 1660 and onwards); in the end the last year mentioned is 1755. Maybe this book contains an archive of many separate documents that have been collected c. 1755/1760. All documents are in French, handwritten on the same type of paper, by various people. Maybe the pages are paginated before / after binding.
Condition: good, with some signs of use and age. The cover and spine are in good condition. Some very small stains. The block is well bound. The pages are often slightly worn in the margins and near the corners. Some small tears and (traces of) folds. Some tiny pieces of paper are missing. Some stains.
