    Description

    [Pope Paul V] 1611 Vellum Papal Breve. One page, on vellum, 19" x 13", in Latin, signed "P", "pp" (for "perpetuum" - that the matter be perpetually known) and "testa" (confirmed), [Rome?], 1611 (the 6th year of his pontificate), not translated, with several folds, else fine. These papal briefs were meant for less significant communications, with papal bulls reserved for more important matters. They were written on vellum, generally folded and sealed in red wax. The pope's name stands first, at the top, normally written in capital letters.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
