About this Item

Folio (30.5 x 21.2 cm.), disbound. Woodcut arms of Spain on title page, large woodcut initial. Numerous small wormholes, mostly marginal, affecting 1-2 letters of text per page without loss. Minor stains and foldlines. Overall in good condition. Old manuscript notes in ink (date of decree and old foliation). (4 ll.). *** This decree of 8 May 1622 forbids Philip's subjects, from the Infantes and Duques to universities, government officials and the common man, to enter into secret agreements, or confianzas, for the purpose of escaping taxation. These were clandestine arrangements where money or goods were given by the owner to a third party to hold in trust, the process being overseen by a member of the ministry or other official in that jurisdiction. The penalty for for entering into such an agreement depended upon one's rank and whether the purpose of the confianza was to defraud others, or to support enemies of the Spanish crown. For example, Ministers of the Exchequer were subject to the complete loss of whatever properties or monies were part of any furtive agreement. Bankers and lower-ranking clerks of the Exchequer were fined 500 ducats. The purpose of this law was to prevent fraud, and to prevent the financial support of enemies of the Spanish Crown-thus universities and monasteries could not receive properties as third parties. *** Ayuso 797.
