Title: Ain Laysche Anzaigung, So allen Landsässen, und denen, die ordenlich, oder bevolhen, Obrigkeit haben, 1595
Author: Wilhelm IV, Duke of Bavaria (Attributed)
Publisher: München Berg
An extremely scarce and rare 2nd edition of Wilhelm IV’s work on the various nobility orders in the Duchy of Bavaria. First printed by Anton Schobser in 1531, there are various instructions and mandates for legislation and the ways in which various decrees could be implemented by the authorities of the period. From the rulers of the judicial court, to the various keepers, judges, court clerks, and more, this volume covers a variety of figures and instructions within only a handful of leaves.
There is a large and detailed coat of arms woodcut on the title page.
One volume in folio, 19 unnumbered leaves
On note of condition, this volume is in fair shape, with the 18th century binding being worn and bearing tape repairs on the spine. There is little to no staining present throughout.
