Ejemplar firmado: Signed by Author(s)
English statesman Hampden, son of famed statesman Henry from King Charles I's reign, was named privy councillor in 1689, commissioner of the Treasury in 1690 and from 1690 to 1694 also served as chancellor of the Exchequer; politician Fox served as commissioner of the Treasury for 23 years, from 1679 to 1702; and statesman Pelham, the 1st Baron Pelham of Laughton, is well known as father of two prime ministers (Henry and the Duke of Newcastle), himself served as Lord Commissioner of the Treasury (1690-92, 1697-99, 1701-02). Signatures clipped from printed document, 3" X 7½", n.p. [London, England], 1691 January 12. Very good. Slight bit of age toning; minor mounting trace on verso. Likely clipped from a routine Treasury document, this item bears a slim row of printed down the top 3½" of the left margin (only about 3/4" wide) -- boilerplate text in a large typeface, but not enough to make sense of it. Hampden, Fox and Pelham each sign in rich brown ink, one above the other, all as commissioners of the Treasury. A partial handwritten text in another hand runs across the lower 3", signed at the close by one "Howard," as yet unidentified. Various noted Howards of the period have been considered -- Edward, Charles, Robert -- and ruled out, but this is probably a high Treasury official. Although a partial piece, nevertheless attractive.
