Important 17th century treatise about the study of coins, and its relationship with the weight and class of metals. The oldest Treaty is of 1572 by Juan de Arfl, titled «Quilator de Oro y Prata» Diogo Flamenco was considered the best printer of its time. Palau says that the aim of the author was to imply all of the testers and real coins of the Indies, the instructions so you can seal with the Royal Arms and their numbers, coins and bars of gold and silver, which are found in that continent. This Treaty consists of 7 chapters, namely: First - « Se Trata de las Pesas del Marco, y de la Deribacion y Que Es Oro de Tantos Quilates de Ley, y Plata de Tantos Dineros de ley, com Sus Tablas de la Declaracion »; Second - « Se Trata del Valor que Tiene El Oro y Plata de Qualquier Ley que Sea, y Porque Reazon y de que Cantidad Se Le Há de Quitar El Señorage al Vendedor »; Third - « Se Trata De La Liga que se Deue Echar a Un Castellano de Oro y Marco de Plata y Porque Razon cõ Sus Tabelas Aunque Este Marcada Su Valor Por Marauedis »; Fourth- « Se Trata Como Se Há de Ensayar la Plata y Oro, y Com que Circunstancias »; Fifth - « Se Trata de Reduzir Oros a Veinte y Dos Quilates y Médio y A Veinte y Dos »; Sixth - « Se Trata Como Se Há de Acimentar El Oro, Com Otras Circunstãcias a Ello Tocante » and finally the Seventh - « Se Trata Del Peso que Han de Tener las Monedas de Oro y Plata Destos Reynos y El Estilo y Quenta que Han de Tener los Tesoreros de las Casas de Monedas para Pagar los Derechos a los Oficiales Mayores y Menores y El que Ellos Han de Tener para Cobrallos, Sin que Aya Error en la Quenta, Com Sus Tablas de lo a Ello Tocante ». Title and text printed in round characters and italics in various bodies, being the title in uppercase and lowercase letters, in one single colour. Capital letters E, E and A ornamented with fantasy motifs. Big leatherhead with fancy motifs in ornamental sheet 1. The text ends with the word «FIN», followed by the ending Index «FIN DE LA TABLA». On the last page comes there is the following caption « Com Licencia En Madrid, por Diego Flamenco – Año de 1623 ». Copy with restoration in the first and second sheet of non numbered pagination in the last page of the book, slightly stained and with slight traces of animal in the margins of some pages. Very Rare.
