Description

    Augustus II of Poland Document Signed "Augustus Rex" as king and elector, four pages in German, 8" x 13", May 30, 1712, n.p.. Augustus II 1670 - 1733), King of Poland and Elector of Saxony, was as Frederick Augustus I the Elector of Saxony 1694-1733, and later also King of Poland 1697-1704 and again 1709-1733. August's great physical strength earned him the nicknames "the Strong"(August II der Starke), "Saxon Hercules" and "iron hand". He liked to show that he lived up to his name by breaking horse shoes with his bare hands. As Elector of Saxony, he is perhaps best remembered as a patron of the arts and architecture. He established the Saxon capital of Dresden as a major cultural center, attracting artists from across Europe to his court. August also amassed an impressive art collection and built fantastic baroque palaces at Dresden and at Warsaw. In fine condition.

    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.
