Original 1575 document signed by King Philip II of Spain ("Yo El Rey"), with translation by Dr. Frank Sedwick. 8-1/2" x 11-1/2". Simple, single-sheet document with handwriting on both sides, including "letterhead" El Rey (The King) at top, "Por El Rey (from the King) on back, and clearly signed in lighter ink "Yo El Rey" (I the King), with secretary's signature Juan Delgado at bottom. Lightly foxed, with traces of red seal and minor folds and pinholes in margin, but fully readable by a professional, as was done by Frank Sedwick, whose translation is printed on an accompanying slip of paper.
