Calligraphy piece decorated with pen-and-ink drawings.


Calligraphy leaf on vellum skin (205 x 275 mm); the leaf was used as a book cover in the 18th century, small pinholes and soiling.

Charming 17th-century calligraphy with pen-and-ink drawings.

Much more than a simple handwritten deed, it could be a pure exercise in calligraphy with no real legal utility.
The text, signed Joannes Brutel, is an acknowledgement of debt on behalf of Germain Sommainville seigneur de Saint Arnoul.
