Abstract:
Grants Jacobo Cromberger, German national, bookprinter, the same privileges, freedoms and honours that were enjoyed by the Knights of the Royal House, independently of the possession of horses or coats of arms. This privilege was obtained following a petition by the beneficiary, Jacobo Cromberger. The concession considered the fact that Mr Jacobo Cromberger had come to Portugal at the King´s request to serve the Kingdom, as well, as the need to have in Portugal «the noble art of printing». The privileges, freedoms and honours in question were crucially extended to all printmakers within the Kingdom. By Patricia Akester
