For the old or the raised new Price ,
if only “there is anytime sufficient supply
of good stout Beer available !”
Decree of Charles I, Duke of Brunswick-Luneburg (1713-1780) “because of the present extremely expensive cereals purchase” allowing a rise in beer prices up to Michaelmas 1761 since “We were pointed out by our princely servants as well as the brewers in the towns that otherwise they are not able … to continue … brewing”. Published Wolfenbüttel November 3, 1760. Without place & printer (1760). 13½ × 16½ in (34.2 × 41.8 cm). 1 page. With large woodcut initial with the freely jumping horse of Lower Saxony under the ducal crown now without escutcheon. With the ducal signature printed together with the L(oco) S(igilli) mark and that of A. A. v. Cramm.
Framing-worthy Broadsheet meant for the billboards
of unused freshness on untrimmed handmade paper with margins of 4-7 cm with two figurative watermarks.
Contrary to those decrees of May 28, 1740, Nov. 14, 1761 + Feb. 27, 1766 this time the brewers “are free … to sell the beer also at the price usual until now”. But woe to those where “by this or that way a shortage of or deficiency with beer may be found!”.
