    Philip II, King of Spain, Letter Signed "Yo el Rey". One page, 7.25" x 6.75" (sight); Monzón, Spain; December 13, 1563. A letter to Juan Jeronimo de Romani, regional master of Valencia and councilor to the King, regarding monies due to a loyal subject, Don C. Fenollet. In part: "... we understood the need he had of a supplement and for that reason we command you to accept these two entries that you said could settle his account. Therefore, having seen the privilege of his father by which he had the faculty, from the Emperor our Lord that is in heaven, to be able to bestow his office on one of his sons, and the appointment made by the Catholic King Don Ferdinand, my great-grandfather, by which it appears that Juan Puig, his ancestor received the same salaries we are ordering to provide the said supplement..." Great association, referencing both his father, Emperor Charles V ("our Lord that is in heaven" Charles V died in 1558) and Ferdinand II, the Catholic King.

    Framed to an overall size of 12.75" x 12.5", with an opening on the back expose the name of the recipient.

    Condition: Light dampstaining along bottom, small bit of paper loss at lower right corner. Ink burn affecting multiple words, but not context.

    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.
