        The document was sworn in Mexico on 15 March 1594, before the notary Alonso Santres (??) , and in it Juan Gracia Barranco, a citizen of Puebla but visiting Mexico City, gives his power of attorney to Lope de la Carrera, also a citizen of Puebla, who was not present, to buy in his name gold, silver, and other things as he sees fit.
        Valton (see below) attributed this formulary to Pedro Ocharte and the woodcut "S" is of the style of woodcut initials he used in various books.
        The earliest known example of such job printing was dated in manuscript in 1562.

Carpenter, A Sixteenth Century Broadside from the Collection of Emilio Valton, #26. Removed from a bound volume and moderately tattered in inner margin. Worming in margins occasionally extending into the text area. => A very good example of Ocharte's job printing, with one of the classic initials.  (34746)   Please RESHELVE This.
