Decree by Philip V regulating the importation of wine and the price and quantity of wine from Zaragoza, starting: “Don Phelipe por la gracia de Dios, Rey de Castilla, de Leon, de Aragon, de las dos Sicilias…” & ending: “Para que por los Cosecheros de Vino de Zaragoza se practiquen las Ordenanzas, que aqui se manda, y se observen otras Probidencias sobre el abasto de esta especie de aquella Ciudad = Gov. = Corregida.”

Six unnumbered leaves. Folio (280 x 196 mm.), modern marbled boards. [From colophon]: S.l.: 1735.

An apparently unrecorded decree related to the wine trade in Zaragoza and its protection from foreign competition. It also allows Zaragozan wine growers to sell wine in jugs up to the price of four reales de plata without needing to report it to the local government.

Fine condition. A contemporary annotator has written at the top of the first leaf: “Sobre la ex adicion de Vino de Zarag[oza] y no poderlo entrar de pena.”
