Anew Wheat instead of Barley for any Brew
Decree of Charles I, Duke of Brunswick-Luneburg (1713-1780), ordering in view of a wheat-harvest “to such a degree good” and subsequently considerably fallen prices to use again wheat instead of barley as brewing cereals. Published Wolfenbüttel December 18, 1741. Without place & printer (1741). 13¼ × 15¼ in (33.5 × 40 cm). 1 page. With large woodcut initial. With the ducal signature printed together with the L(oco) S(igilli) mark and that of Hieronymus von Münchhausen of the so-called White Lineage as Prime Minister.
Framing-worthy Broadsheet meant for the Billboards
of unused freshness on untrimmed handmade paper with margins of 3-5.5 cm with two figurative watermarks.
Underlying to this the decree of June 30, 1740, considering the raised prices for wheat “to use instead barley for brewing”. On the addition of both barley and wheat see the decrees of the sixties (May 28, 1762,, Oct. 8, 1762 + Aug. 28, 1764).
