About this Item

In 1628 the Conde de Chinchon had just finished serving as the Treasurer General of the Consejo de Aragon and was preparing to travel to Peru to be the viceroy and captain general of that New World region. He served in that role from 1629 to 1639. The Count had extensive land, business, and political matters that had to be overseen while he was in Southern Hemisphere, and in this printed form => specifically printed for him he gives his power of attorney to Jose de Carvajal Agurto, "my secretary"; Juan de Olabarria, "my accountant"; and Juan de Alderete. They are empowered to administer his estates, collect rents, and to do "other diverse things." Considerable detail is given concerning the extent of their power, including appearing in his stead before courts and councils, dealing with lawyers, agents, and the clergy, and much more. => Never before have we seen a power of attorney printed specifically for a newly appointed viceroy and specifically stating that he needs it because he is to be a viceroy in the New World. Signed by several witnesses and with the Count's paraph. Folio (32 cm; 12.5"). [6] ff. Bound in half cordovan morocco with marbled paper sides. Light waterstaining at edges and along center fold.
