Manuscript in the Name of Leonardo Loredano, Doge of Venice, 1501-1521, vellum, one page, 9.5" x 7", Venice, October 22, 1519. Penned in Latin and giving Loredano's name as "Leonardus Loredanus", this loosely reads in part: "...We notify you that Daniel Iordanus, notary public, imperial scribe who today wrote and published a document of annulment through which Hieronymus Marinonus of Milan....and annuls an instrument of exchange of pastors and pertinent goods according to the same celebrated Hieronymus and Hieronymus of Brebia requested by the hand of Ioannis Ambrosii of Casoraris of Milan a notary according as is read more extensively in the above mentioned instrument...". A few scattered stains, expected aging and minor marginal loss from seal breakage. Also, two modern pencil notations of dates. Fine condition. Loredan (1436 - 1521) was among the Venetian Dukes who maintained a commercial empire unrivaled until Spain's ascendancy in the 16th century. Here is a splendid opportunity to acquire a document that bridges the medieval and modern worlds.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
