About this Item

Folio (32 x 22.5 cm.), two manuscripts stitched together, with a nearly contemporary wrapper formed by 2 leaves. Written in ink, in tidy chancery hands of the seventeenth century, with a different hand (also early) for the title on the first leaf. The first leaf of the first section of the manuscript is on papel sellado with a 68-maravedi stamp bearing the date 1638. The second manuscript is written throughout on papel sellado with a 10-maravedi stamp, also bearing the date 1638. Laid into the second work, after the fourth leaf, is an engraving (28.4 x 19.5 cm.) bearing an elaborate coat of arms (see below). Uncut. A few stains on the upper wrapper; minor darkening at edges. In very good condition. Contemporary signatures of witnesses, etc., on final leaf of each document. Octavo-size leaf laid in with table of contents, dated 9 September 1758. (1 l. with title, 1 blank l.), (26 ll. on Duran family), (26 ll. on Torres family), (2 blank ll.), engraved coat of arms of the Torres family laid in. *** Genealogical documentation of the Duran family from Extremadura and the Torres family from Navarre. The title on the upper wrapper reads, "Ihs. Mª Joseph [Jesus Maria Joseph]. // Testimonios // e unas informaciones e outros instrumentos // de nobleça de la familia y linaxe de // los Duranes de la Burra [?]". Each document begins with "Francisco de Nogales en nombre del lisensiado Juan Duran de Torres abogado de la Real Audiencia ."Names mentioned in the text include Francisco Duran de Torres, father of Juan Duran de Torres, and Fuente de Cantos and Mérida (Extremadura).The engraving laid into the second work is a dark, clear impression of a plate probably executed in the eighteenth century. It includes the arms of Navarre, a double-headed eagle, two lions rampant, a crown, the motto "Nomen sempiternum dabo eis / quod non peribit, Esaie 56" ("I will give them an everlasting name, that shall not be cut off, Isaiah 56.5"). In the cartouche are the words, "Insignia Sive Stemmata Genearchae Palatij Familiaeque de Torres ex Regia Stirpo & Prosapia Navarrense Oriundi" ("Insignia or pedigree of the Torres palace [?] and family, of royal stock and Navarran ancestry"). ***.
