Even if you are not a C&I buff this is pretty neat stuff.
Alban has a collection of a number of period documents which he's
scanned and is willing to make/send CD's. Including a Spanish Patent of
Arms. The link is just samples from the documents.
> Dunno if anyone would be interested, but just in case:
> I've posted 7 more photos to my LiveJournal gallery
> (http://pics.livejournal.com/tedeisenstein/), this time
> samples from a sixteenth-century Austrian rent-book.
> (Look for "The Absdorf Rent-book" set.)
> Some nice, and some strictly utilitarian, calligraphy.
> No illuminations, though, darn it.
> The whole kit-and-kaboodle is 80 photos, errr, pages long; if

> names, or wants to dig out interesting bits about period
> farming (did you know saffron could grow in Austria?
> I didn't), drop me a line and we'll do the Alban-sends-
> yet-another-CD-out schtick.
