Notes of an eighteenth-century merchant in the Jagiellonian Library Berlin Collection

Reference books and manuals designed for merchants, the so-called practica della mercatura or ars mercatoria were already being published in Europe in the Middle Ages. The Italian name for this genre derives from the title of a work written by a Florentine factor, by the name of Francesco Balducci Pegolotti. His Practica della mercatura, evocatively subtitled Libro di divisamenti di paesi e di misure di mercatantie e d’altre cose bisognevoli di sapere a mercatanti di diverse parti del mondo (...) (The Book of Discussions about the states and goods and other things useful for merchants...), describes the trading terms along the Silk Road to China in the early fourteenth century. The oldest parts of the Cumanicus Codex date back to the end of the thirteenth century, this compendium of information about the customs and language of the Cumans (including an Italian-Latin-Persian-Cuman glossary) was compiled by or on behalf of Italian merchants from Genoa and Venice, with trade factories on the Black Sea. The Catalan merchant manual El libro di mercatantie et usanze di paesi had three editions before the year 1500.1 About 1,500 texts of this type came into being in the sixteenth century, mainly in Germany and Italy, in the seventeenth century around 2000 new texts appeared, in the eighteenth century there was indeed an avalanche of titles: around 80002. From the beginning, the genre was characterized by a great diversity in content and format: ranging from cheap books printed in quarto format intended for students of the merchant profession, such as John Browne’s The Merchant Avizo,

ont Cours en Europe. Le tout expliqué & rendu fort intelligible par Henry Desguliers, Professeur des Mathematiques & de tout ce qui a rapport au Commerce & aux Changes, A Amsterdam, Chez Adrian Braakman, 1701. In addition to these printed manuals, guides and treatises there were also manuscripts intended for private use. One of the oldest surviving texts of this type was the property of a factor from Münster working in Gdańsk around 1560.3 Among the works found in the Jagiellonian Library Berlin collection there is a merchant’s notebook dating back to the eighteenth century, entitled Annotations et remarques, touchant le négoce à Cadix, bearing the siglum (of catalog number) Gall.Quart.46. The manuscript has 24 leaves with dimensions of 218 mm x 150 mm, the original foliation is executed in ink up to page 10, the modern foliation was added in pencil. There are 21 blank pages. The manuscript was written in French, except for quite a long passage which is in German (fol. 3ro-4ro), on wax trade, most likely written in the same hand. The handwriting is small, clear, neat, 24-26 lines per page. It is in good condition, apart from a few small tears (on leaves 4, 8, 17, 23.) The light blue binding made of course paper measuring 223 mm x 155 mm is not genuine, it was made in Königliche Bibliothek. Initially, the manuscript probably was built up of a bunch of quires lined by one bifolio with the same watermark as in the main text. Currently, that bifolio constitutes the first two flyleaves. The manuscript consists of 15 “chapters”: • Annotations et Remarques, touchant le Négoce à Cadix, 1ro-3ro, 4,5 pages • Remarques pour l’achat, la préparation & le Négoce de la cire blanchie [in German], 3ro-4ro, 2 pages 3 Compare E. Schulte, “Das Danziger Kontorbuch des Jakobs Stöve aus Münster”, Hansische Geschichtsblätter 62, 1937, pp. 40-72, presented as: P. Jeannin, “Guides de voyage et manuels pour marchands”, in: Voyager à la Renaissance : Actes Du Colloque De Tours, 30 Juin-13 Juillet 1983, Maisonneuve et Larose, 1987, p. 167.

Some chapters are followed by blank leaves. Certainly, the intention had been to complete the empty spaces with information on a given subject. The manuscript is unfinished: the last leaf bears only the title, which is centered and underlined: Evaluation de quelques Articles de la Marchand[i]se sur le pied que leur Déclaration [an illegible mark] est admise à l’accise de Leipzig (the name of the city is centered and underlined), the text breaks off after the title. Nothing follows after the title. The manuscript contains practical information of commercial nature: the prices of goods, of freight, of brokers, sales units, examples and models of conversions for currencies, weights and measures used in different European countries, the addresses of good factories, a list of most easily tradable commodities, the types of vessels sailing to the New World, etc. The manual also includes information concerning a variety of goods (cloth, wax, spices, etc.) from various places in the world (Bambourg, Breslau, Lion / Lyon, Buenos Ayres, Indes, Amsterdam, Leipzig, Constantinople, Marseille, Piedmont, Gothenbourg, Braband, Brest, Ffort, Florence , Turin, Vicenç, Lucques, Silesia, Mexique, Lauban). For example:

“En fait de toiles raïées en couleurs, de Silesie & de Lauban, il ne faut pour l’Espagne comme comme pour Le Mexique, que des couleurs fortes & vives, point de raïes cramoisy, mauvais rouge; Mais du Ponceau, de L’incarnat, du Bleu, du Verd, mais vif; point de toiles fines, mais des qualites ordinaires, on n’y fait aucune différence. [...]. Les frais à

compte de vente. [...] Pour l’Espagne, les toiles raïées en blanc & rouge pas trop fines, valent mieux que celles avec des raïes de différentes couleurs. Les Brétagnes étroites superfines & les Estopilles unies superfines de Silésie, y sont aussi d’une bonne consomation; de même que la cire blanchie en marquettes quarrée, on préfère celles que l’on blanchit à Bambourg, elle se vend ordinairement à bord, de sorte qu’il n’y a que le frêt, le courtrage & la provision à déduire” (fol. 1vo-2ro). “Les lettres écrites de Lion pour la Bourgogne doivent être affranchies jusqu’à Rhinhausen, en les envoïant par Strasbourg, elles retardent quelque fois, de sorte que de Leipzig à Lion, il faut également affranchir jusq’à Rheinhausen car à Strasbourg le courrier pour Lion part avant la distribution des lettres pour l’Allemagne ce qui fait le retard d’un ordinaire” (fol. 7ro). The manuscript is an autograph. Although most parts of the text were written in the third person, some parts are written in the first person singular: “Par exemple; je veux savoir à combien revient le carolin sur le pied des Louis vieux à Ag 10, Le carolin perdant 4 % contre Louis vieux à Ag 5. Je pose enrègle de trois [...]” (fol. 8vo). “Pour savoir ce que reviennent les carolins & louis neufs [prawdopodobnie początkowo: louis d’or] en monnoïe, suivant les différents périodes des portes. Je pose d’abord la porte des carolins contre Louis vieux” (fol. 10ro). The manuscript does not contain the name of the author / owner, or other premises that would enable identification.

The language of the manuscript suggests that the author may have been French, or at least of French origin (e.g. huguenot who left France after the revocation of the Edict of Nantes in 1685 and settled in Silesia belonging to Prussia after the end of the Succession War)4, but in the eighteenth century, French was the common language in Europe for representatives of different states and professions, like merchants. A good example of this can be the explanation given by the author of the great encyclopedia on trade dating back to the end of the century, who writes in the preface: J’aurais pu publier cet Ouvrage aussi en allemand, italien ou espagnol; mais la langue française est si généralement connue et entendue dans le commerce, que je l’ai adoptée comme la plus propre à mon but. 5 The same author explains the omission in his encyclopedia of information on trade with Spanish colonies in America with the fact that only those subject of the Spanish crown have that right: Comme le commerce de l’Amérique Espagnole est uniquement réservé aux sujets de S.M.C, j’ai cru qu’il étoit inutile d’en instruire les autres Nations.6 Since the manuscript Gall. Qu. 46 contains a lot of detailed information on trade with the colonies, this would suggest that the author was indeed a Spanish subject. The above mentioned monopoly was, however, repeatedly broken, and in the eighteenth century a resilient group of French merchants did trade in Cadiz.7 The Dutch paper (watermark with the stationer’s name: Van der Ley and his coat of arms, posthorn, occurring alternately with the letters GR ornated with crown8) does not prejudge the author’s nationality. First of all, the Dutch paper had been used widely throughout Western Europe, and secondly, for a merchant practicing international trade, it was easy to buy a paper from a foreign country.

4 An idea suggested by R. Chamboredon, personal correspondence. 5 Guide des négocians dans toutes leurs entreprises mercantiles; ou Traité instructif sur le commerce de cent vingt-six villes commerçantes de l’Europe, de l’Asie et de l’Afrique..., par M. Laurent Lipp, Montpellier, 1793. 6 Ibidem. 7 Compare R. Chamboredon, «Toutes antennes déployées », w: Rives nord-méditerranéennes.

Churchill. Watermarks in Paper in Holland, England, France, etc., in the XVII and XVIII Centuries and their Interconnection. Amsterdam: Hertzberger, 1967, charts 139, 321.

The title on the first page (in large font), suggests that the author’s head office was based in Cadiz, but there are captions, (smaller font) in later parts, on trade in other centers, such as: Lion (fol. 7ro), Remarques sur les Velours de Gênes (f.11ro), Notte de diverses bonnes fabriques en Italie (fol. 22ro), which could indicate that Cadiz was just one of the centers in which he conducted business.


It is just as difficult to determine the recipient of the manuscript. The conMarzena Chrobak Notes of an eighteenth-century merchant in the Jagiellonian Library Berlin Collection

tent concerning both professional and private matters, taking on the form of a notebook, indicates that it had been intended for a narrow group of users. The fact that the notes were not only intended for the author’s personal use, can be proven by his explanations on how to decipher entries made in the account books. It appears that the manuscript may have been intended for the author, his closest associates and students of the profession, for example for his son. On the other hand, the notes on how to decipher certain records could have been a kind of memorandum, in which case the notebook could have been written solely for one person. Or perhaps they are notes dictated by an experienced merchant to an apprentice. The manuscript was created after 1750, which can be inferred from information, presented in the first part, on the price of wax from that year. The verb used to express this is in the imperfect tense (fol. 2vo). The fact that the only Spanish port mentioned in the notes is in Cadiz, would suggest that it dates from the period before the so-called ‘Decree on Free Trade’ (1765), authorizing other Spanish ports to trade with America.9 The manuscript has no features suggestive of the first owner: notes, old catalog numbers, etc. It is not known exactly how it got to Königliche Bibliothek. The lack of an access number indicates that it was the property of the Königliche Bibliothek prior to the year 1828, the year that the accession register was first implemented. It is the only example of French-language literature of this type housed in the Jagiellonian Library.

Natalia Czopek

Works by Antonio Pérez among the manuscripts in the Jagiellonian Library Berlin Collection in Krakow Among the volumes of Spanish manuscripts of the Berlin collection housed in the Jagiellonian Library in Krakow, there are three works signed by the name of Antonio Pérez from Aragon, who lived between 1540-1611 and was secretary of King Philip II of Spain, like his father, Gonzalo Pérez, who had been the Secretary of the Council of State of king Charles I. Antonio graduated from the most prestigious universities in Spain and received training from his father in matters of state. He was appointed Secretary of State in 1567. In the first years of tenure he gained the king’s trust on account of his high qualifications. He became one of the king’s closest advisers and a favorite of Philip II. His position was strengthened even more so when he replaced the deceased Prince of Eboli as leader of the ‘dove’ faction. Unfortunately, this honorable appointment marked the beginning of the end of Antonio Pérez’s political career. The Governor-General of the Netherlands, the king’s half-brother, Don Juan of Austria, concerned with the enormous influence that Antonio Pérez’s ‘dove’ faction had on Philip II, sent his secretary, Juan de Escobedo, to Spain. He accused Pérez of trading secrets of the Spanish Crown, of having a clandestine relationship with the widow of the Prince of Eboli and of focusing too much on the accumulation of economic goods. Historical sources indicate that Antonio Pérez most probably managed to convince the king of his innocence and of the detrimental influence that the Secretary of Juan of Austria had on domestic politics. Juan de Escobedo was murdered, and his family accused Pérez of hiring the killers and demanded that he be punished. His situation worsened when personal documents sent by Juan of Austria cleared Juan de Escobedo of any allegations of wrongdoing against the Crown. This turn of events strained the trust and confidence that Philip II had imparted to his closest adviser. The king ordered that all actions taken by Pérez be examined, which eventually led

to his arrest. The attention of the royal court had become focused on the incorporation of Portugal, the conflict concerning the County of Ribagorza, and the situation in Aragon, amid which Antonio Pérez was forgotten for some time. In the days of Philip II, the Kingdom of Aragon was separate and governed by its own structures and laws, which prevented the ruler from intervening in the


politics of the regions of Aragon, Catalonia and Valencia. The king hardly visited Natalia Czopek Works by Antonio Pérez among the manuscripts in the Jagiellonian Library Berlin Collection in Krakow

this part of his estate, where power was exercised by the nobility who waged fierce battles between themselves. This land of complete lawlessness was a haven for bandits hiding from justice. It was there that Antonio Pérez fled to after his escape from prison in 1590. He demanded a second trial, accusing Philip II of involvement in the murder of Juan de Escobedo as well as of having plans to reduce the rights of the Kingdom of Aragon. With the help of the Inquisition Tribunal in, the king Zaragoza accused Pérez of heresy, but the attempt to take him to prison in Zaragoza caused waves of unrest. In response to the rebellions, the king planned an armed expedition to Aragon, which he reported to the ruling nobility. In effect of this decision made by Philip II, the royal army quickly suppressed the rebellion in Zaragoza, called the ‘Antonio Pérez revolution.’ The leaders of the rebellion were executed, but Antonio Pérez managed to escape to France, from where in 1592 he organized an unsuccessful attempt to invade Aragon. Then he fled to England where he continued to spread the so-called black legend of Philip II, a part of which was, among other things, blaming him for the death of his son Carlos. In turn, his criticism of the king’s policy focused mainly on the use of repression against the Spanish Moriscos, which resulted in the uprising, bloody massacres and resettlement of the Muslim population. He also claimed that the king led a relatively sedentary lifestyle, that he governed from a distance - during his entire reign the king left the country only once and never went to the battlefield with his army, that the debt of the Treasury was increasing - Philip II had announced bankruptcy several times, that he was extremely concerned with the construction of El Escorial, had difficulties in making decisions on matters of state, conducted a long war, his policy in the Netherlands was ineffective, and he led to the defeat of the Spanish Armada in England. Antonio Pérez died in Paris twenty years later, trying in vain to obtain forgiveness of the Spanish Crown.1

Antonio Pérez’s tumultuous life supplied subject matter for writing, in which he either criticized the king, gave him advice or justified his own behavior. The three manuscripts described here are devoted to an analysis of the political situation of the country, the presentation of current events and advising the king on matters of state. The manuscript bearing the catalogue number Hisp. Qu. 7 is a copy made in the eighteenth century in Spain or Paraguay. Watermarks have allowed us to infer the text’s copying date. The marks consisting of the letter F inscribed within an ornamental circle and various types of crowns found in the manuscript are recorded in different versions in Heawood’s catalogue2 and directories of the Galicia archives3 as signs from the years 1773-1793, from Spain or Paraguay. Basing on these data we can assume that the manuscript was made in the last quarter of the eighteenth century. It consists of two parts and contains a short introduction in the form of a letter to the king, entitled Por Antonio Perez, secretario de estado AL Rey n[uest]ro señor en sus Reales manos and ending on the leaf 1v° with the words en la carzel de mi destierro, y de 1598. Ant.o Perez, in which Antonio Pérez, who was in prison justifies why he had written the following document entitled Discurso Al Rey and what it contains. This Discurso Al Rey, which is the first part of the manuscript (leaves 1r °-99r°), concerns the situation in the kingdom of Spain, friends and enemies of the king, and includes advice on how to deal with difficult matters of state and how to govern the kingdom.4 The last part, entitled Norte de Principes (leaf 100r°-305r°) does not vary in theme from other works of Antonio Pérez. In addition, in this part he stresses the prevailing opinions on the actions taken by the king among representatives of different strata of Spanish society. Two different scribes worked on particular parts of the manuscript. On leaf 99r° under the text of the first part there is a crossed out postscript in somebody

else’s handwriting Opus Coronatur. This postscript was added by the scribe who worked on the second part, which shows that the second part was made later. The second scribe is also the author of other corrections and additions in the first part. The first part was kept without binding probably by the first copyist, since the verso of the last folio is very dirty (the first folio is missing and it cannot


be inferred on the basis of the recto). The first and last leaves of the second part Natalia Czopek Works by Antonio Pérez among the manuscripts in the Jagiellonian Library Berlin Collection in Krakow

are not dirty, which indicates that they were added later and the two parts were bound together. On leaf 101r° there is a note made in different handwriting Segun Thomás Tamayo de Vargas este Norte ha sido impreso (…) sin el nombre del Autor.5 The note was probably made by the manuscript’s next owner. Library binding of this type known as quarter binding has covers made of black cloth, while the book spine and corners are made from brown leather. The binding’s origin can be traced by the catalogue number stamped in gold in the lower part of the spine, in the same way as the title in the top part of the spine ANTONIO PEREZ Memorial y Norte. The same catalogue number appears on leaf 1r°. The lack of an access number indicates that the manuscript was catalogued in the Royal Library of Berlin before 1828, the year in which the register of accession was implemented. The same foliation for both parts was made in the Royal Library of Berlin after binding the manuscript. Comparing the text of the first part of the manuscript6 with the critical edition by Modesto Santos, created on the basis of the version of Baltasar Alamos de Barrientos issued in Madrid in 1990 and entitled Discurso político al Rey Felipe III al comienzo de su reinado, it can be noted that the small differences in the text are mainly the omission or insertion of single words, e.g. f. 6r° pone ser Indiano / hace ser indigno. Both documents are broken up into subchapters in the same way, with the exception of the lack of subchapters Indias Occidentales and Castilla in Hisp .Qu. 7.

5 According to Thomás Tamayo de Vargas the book entitled Norte was printed without the author’s name. Thomas Tamayo de Vargas (1589-1641) was a bibliographer, typographer, and Spanish writer, since 1625 the official chronicler, and author of many works on the history of Spain. 6 A reference made to another copy of the Discurso is located in the catalogue of the Biblioteca Nacional in Madrid (catalogue number MSS/12195) in a collective volume entitled Colección de varios papeles sobre distintos asuntos para el uso de D. Pedro Aparici, oficial de la Secretaría de Estado y del Despacho Universal de Indias (t.XI) (Cf.

The text entitled Norte de príncipes, virreyes, presidentes, gobvernadores. Y advertimientos politicos sobre lo público y particular de una monarquía, fundados en materia y razón de Estado, y Gobierno, which makes up the second part of the manuscript, was created in 1601 but was not published until 1788 in Madrid (Imprenta de Pedro Marín). In some studies, the authorship of Antonio Pérez is found to be questionable, the majority of scholars considers the author to be Baltasar Alamos de Barrientos, his representative.7 There are many copies found in, for example, the Bibliothèque Interuniversitaire de la Sorbonne (catalogue number MS 1304), in the Real Academia de la Historia (catalogue number 9-3978) and the Biblioteca de Castilla La Mancha de Toledo (catalogue number CCPB000570905-9).8 One of the copies is a part of the manuscript designated with the catalogue number Hisp. Qu. 61. Comparing the two versions shows a difference in the title.9 In Ms. Hisp. Qu. 61 on leaves 370r°-374r° is the Dedicatoria, which is not present in the other copy. Other differences include either the omission of certain single words, or slight rewording. In the sources available, I found only titles of subsequent editions and critical editions of the work without the possibility to consult them10.

The second of the manuscripts bearing the catalogue number Hisp. Qu. 8 is a copy made by Antonio Valero for D. Isidro del Olmo y Monroi, who lived in the eighteenth century (there is a reference to his original letters in the register of manuscripts in the Cervantes Institute dating back to 1791.). As is clear from the title printed on leaf 1r° (MAXIMAS de Antonio Perez Para El Señor D. Isidro del


Olmo y Monroi. 25 de Agosto de 1770 Por Ant. Valero.) the copy may be dated in Natalia Czopek Works by Antonio Pérez among the manuscripts in the Jagiellonian Library Berlin Collection in Krakow

the second half of the eighteenth century. The copying date is confirmed by watermarks representing rosaries with the inscribed letters F and S which were described in the aforementioned volumes.11 The content refers to the historical events associated with the figure of Antonio Pérez, who comments on the political and economic situation of Spain, providing the king with advice. The manuscript consists of 297 maxims and a brief introduction. The first thirtyone maxims are marked with numbers (Primera - Treinta y uno), the rest are numbered with numerals 32-297. The genuine parchment binding is characteristic of many manuscripts from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.12 The binding’s authenticity is confirmed by the use of the same kind of paper in the manuscript as in the endpaper. The title Ant. Perez sus maximas Politicas is in the top part of the book spine, the bottom part is in red leather with the catalogue number embossed in gold Ms.hisp.quart.8 and repeated in black ink on leaf 1r° above the title in an ornate frame. There is a note on leaf 4v° that reads: De Paris 10 de Mayo de 1600, which is probably a copy of the author’s note, who was hiding in Paris from the tribunal of the Inquisition of Zaragoza. No access number indicates that the manuscript was in the Royal Library of Berlin before 1828, the year that the accession register was initiated. It can be assumed that it previously belonged to the collection of Isidro del Olmo y Monroi. The work Maximas de Antonio Perez, secretario de estado de Phelipe segundo, escritas de orden de Enrique quarto, rey de Francia, y remitidas a Phelipe segundo, año de 1600 was written during Antonio Pérez’s stay in France and was published and sent to King Philip II of Spain in 1600.

script are mentioned in Internet catalogues of the Bibliothèque Interuniversitaire de la Sorbonne (catalogue number MS 1307), the Biblioteca Nacional de Madrid (catalogue number MSS/10872) and the Biblioteca Regional de Madrid (catalogue number MS 21).13 One of the copies made by Felipe de Samaniego is reported in the catalogue of manuscripts of the Instituto Cervantes.14 The last of the manuscripts bearing the catalogue number Hisp. Qu. 61 is a copy which was made in the eighteenth century in Spain. The copying date can be ascertained on the basis of the watermarks, which represent coats of arms with the symbol of the cross, the letters SP and the numerals 1 and 2. These symbols are dated in the aforementioned catalogues15 as being from the years 1725-61, which confirms a similar date for the other two manuscripts. It includes several works whose authorship is attributed to Antonio Pérez.16 The first part is made up of letters written by Antonio Pérez. They are devoid of the typical formulas for letters and have no particular addressees. The only letter which has a specific recipient is a letter to King Henry IV on leaves 31v°32v°. The other textual parts are Antonio Pérez’s accounts of his imprisonment, riots in Zaragoza as well as his escape from the country, the memorial which he delivered in self-defense during the trial, aphorisms, and Norte de Principes, a work concerning the political situation in Spain. The manuscript was made by two scribes.17 On leaf 1r° there is a note which reads, Es uno de los libros de la propiedad de J. Agüero and a marking. This note was added by one of the successive owners by the name of J. Agüero. This is probably José Agüero (1786-1858), a Peruvian studying in Spain, the future revolutionary who supported the revolutionary ideas of Antonio Pérez. On leaf 4v° there is another note with marking, but without a last name Propiedad 29

On folio 314v° we find a Latin sentence taken from the Vulgate Bible: Noli quaerere fieri iudex, nisi valeas virtute irrumpere iniquitates, ne fortè extimescas faciem potentis. The manuscript has partially come apart from the original, reinforced parchment bindings. Binding of this type is characteristic of many manuscripts from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.18 A fragment of the title + RELACIONES DE ANTONIO PEREZ is in the upper part of the book spine, while in the bottom part there is a piece of red leather with a catalogue number embossed in gold Ms.hisp.quart.61 and repeated in black ink at the top of the front endpaper.

the pseudonym of Rafael Peregrino in London in 1594, as an elaboration of Relaciones most likely published a year earlier in Pau19. The content of Relaciones refers to Antonio Pérez’s time spent in prison, his escape from the country and the protests which took place in Zaragoza against his imprisonment. It contains an analysis made by Pérez of the country’s political situation and advice given to the king on matters of state.20 Comparing the described copy with a short fragment of the first edition of the 1594, entitled Pedaços de historia, o Relaciones21 only minor differences can be seen, involving the omission or addition of a few words. Later editions, referred to only in online sources, come from Spain from 1624, 1644 and 1849.22 The work is referred to by many monographs and articles whose titles are only listed in the available sources.23 Another work Norte de Principes created in 1601 and entitled Norte de príncipes, virreyes, presidentes, gobvernadores.

Phelipe Segundo de este nombre. Y allende de esto algunas cartas á sus amigos e hija25. It contains a collection of aphorisms mostly from the letters of Antonio Pérez pertaining to


the political and economic situation of Spain. Comparing the available copy Natalia Czopek Works by Antonio Pérez among the manuscripts in the Jagiellonian Library Berlin Collection in Krakow

with the one published in Madrid 1787, it can be deduced that many different collections of aphorisms by Antonio Pérez were formed, some of them come from his letters and reports, other were taken from other personal documents. These are collections of individual sentences that are rarely repeated, but have the same title (Aforismos de Antonio Perez). The work is referred to in articles by Monique Polo from Université de Toulouse “Lo literario en la política de Antonio Pérez” as well as Andrea Herrán Santiago from the Universidad de Valladolid, “La Prosa Epistolar Aforística y del Siglo XVI” 26 The available sources also include the titles of two critical editions.27 Memorias, the last work included in the manuscript, is Antonio Pérez’s memoir of the royal court and the political and economic situation of Spain under the rule of Philip II. Another publication of the work, whose title is only mentioned in the available sources, was issued in Madrid in 1944 by the publishing house Mediterráneo. The circumstances surrounding the creation of three described manuscripts make them extremely interesting historical documents and as such they were certainly considered to be very interesting material for later generations, which explains the existence of multiple copies. They are undoubtedly a very valuable source of information concerning the political situation in Spain at the time of Philip II, which calls for further, more detailed research.

Jean-Louis Chanal and his Version of the Treatise Dissertation sur la nature et la propagation du feu Among the manuscripts in the Berlin Collection there is a volume bearing the shelfmark Gall. Fol. 150. In Lemm’s catalogue its contents are described as follows: “Jean-Louis Chanal, Dissertation sur la nature et la propagation du feu, Turin 1786.”1 This identification seems doubtful, because despite the fact that the work itself is well known, both the author and publication date do not coincide with information which is generally available. All known sources identify the author of the treatise as Gabrielle-Émilie le Tonnelier de Breteuil Marquise du Châtelet and give the year 1744 as the date of publication. What then is the text in the Krakow manuscript? Even a cursory survey of the volume allows us to conclude that it is unquestionably the work of Émilie du Châtelet. A comparison of the handwritten text with the text of the 1744 issue (Paris, Prault fils), brings us to the conclusion that it is an abridged version of the treatise, of which some parts were also modified. Thus this question comes to mind: Who made those modifications and for what purpose. Answers to these questions are provided in a letter pasted at the beginning of the manuscript, signed by Jean-Louis Chanal and bearing the date of July 6, 1786. We have not yet been able to identify the author. As for the letter’s recipient, he is addressed as Sire and Votre Majesté (fol. 2r°) indicating that he must have been a monarch. Given that the letter was written in Turin, the capital of Piedmont, it is possible that he was referring to Vittorio Amedeo III, the Duke of Savoy and Piedmont, the King of Sardinia (1726-1797, who took the throne in 1773). Yet another fact seems to indirectly confirm this hypothesis: on fol. 2vo,

Jean-Louis Chanal states the following:2 “How wonderful it would be for me if I was ever able, given the time it would save, which was my main goal, to summarize all the research on a topic so vital to state administration.”  This sentence allows us to determine what intentions had guided the author of the letters. First, Jean-Louis Chanal made it clear that his main goal had been “to save”


the reader’s time. In other words, to prepare important works for the developKrzysztof Kotuła Jean-Louis Chanal and his Version of the Treatise Dissertation sur la nature et la propagation du feu

ment of science in a way which should allow for quick and easy examination of their theses. Chanal feels this is an important issue, since science plays a vital role in the functioning of a modern state. This could correspond to the fondness that Vittorio Amedeo III is known to have had for exact science. Secondly, the author of the letter, in a manner which is almost direct, expresses his hope that a high post would be bestowed upon him by the king. What might have the post been? Just three years before writing the letter, in 1783, Vittorio Amedeo III, founded the Academy of Sciences of Turin (Accademia delle Scienze di Torino). Perhaps it was precisely in that institution that Chanal had planned to find employment. However, it does not seem likely that Jean-Louis Chanal wrote his Dissertation summary with the sole intention of offering the work to the king. There are several reasons for this hypothesis. Firstly, the dedication is not composed into the manuscript, as a whole, but was added to it later. The paper on which the letter, addressed to the king, was written is from a different workshop, and the size of the pages does not match the dimensions of the volume. The task of determining the exact date that the letter was included to the manuscript is hampered by the fact that the book’s binding is not genuine. It is certain that the binding took place in Königliche Bibliothek. This is indicated by both the marbled paper used for its production which is typical for that library3, as well as the watermark and signature Fried. Wilh. D. III found on the flyleaves.4 Second, the text of the treatise itself does not appear to have been transcribed with particular care, which is usually the case with manuscripts execut-

2 « Qu’il serait glorieux pour moi, si par l’économie du tems que j’ai eu particulièrement en vue, je parvenais jamais à abreger toutes recherches dans une matière aussi importante pour l’administration d’un État » 3 Cf. e.g. Mss. Gall. Fol. 124 and 155. 4 This is, of course, Friedrich-Wilhelm III, who became king of Prussia November 16, 1797.

ed for monarchs. Indeed, the writing is relatively elegant, though the scribe did not bother to use ruled lines, which would have prevented the emergence of unaesthetic slants in the lines of text. What is significant is the fact that many sentences were crossed out and numerous interlinear corrections in the margins were made by a different hand at a later time. As we will see later in this


article, the nature of these corrections indicates that they had been added by Krzysztof Kotuła Jean-Louis Chanal and his Version of the Treatise Dissertation sur la nature et la propagation du feu

the author himself, for they are not notes made in the style of commentary, instead they are refinements, substitutions and clarifications that allow for a fuller understanding of the leading idea of each paragraph. The proofreader was clearly not concerned with the aesthetics, making the text appear to be a rough draft. It is therefore very possible that Jean-Louis Chanal had previously revised the Dissertation, and later, perhaps under the strain of extreme urgency, he decided to offer his work to the king. It is difficult to ascertain the exact date when the abstract of the treatise had been written. There is no date in the manuscript. Also, the watermarks in the paper do not provide us with any specific information. All leaves carry the mark of the type Pro Patria, very popular in the eighteenth century, accompanied by the countermark IVDL. This abbreviation directs us to the papermaker Jan van der Ley. However, the sign IVDL was also used long after his death, between the years 1703 and 1894. We have to assume that the only acceptable terminus post quem is the publication date of Émilie du Châtelet’s Dissertation, that is 1744, and the terminus ante quem is the year of Jean-Louis Chanal’s dedication made in 1783. If in fact, the work was written some time before Jean-Louis Chanal’s decision to offer it to the king, and since he did not take the trouble of making a careful copy of his version, he must have, most apparently, believed that the text in itself was important enough, and it’s abridgement so vital that it would ensure the ruler’s favor on his part. So what in actual fact is the Dissertation sur la nature et la propagation du feu by Émilie du Châtelet, and how was it amended by Jean-Louis Chanal? This work is worthy of attention both on account of its theses, as well as the person of the author. Gabrielle-Émilie le Tonnelier de Breteuil Marquise du Châtelet, who lived between 1706 and 1749, is widely considered one of the most outstanding women of the eighteenth century. Her living conditions contributed to her attainment. Her father gave her a solid and comprehensive education, such as vested only to boys. Émilie turned out to be a very talented

young girl. She was not only fluent in Latin, Greek and German, but also played on the harpsichord, sang operatic arias, performed in the ballet and theater. As an adult, she was able to develop her interests as she chose. At age nineteen, she married a wealthy thirty year old Marquis du Châtelet-Lomont. The marriage was from the beginning only a financial arrangement between the two families; her husband was not interested in her undertakings, allowing her to continue her quest for knowledge of mathematics. Neglected by her husband, she entered into several more or less permanent relationships with affluent and influential men. Among her many lovers, it was Voltaire who had the greatest impact on Émilie, their relationship lasted twelve years. Voltaire believed, ignoring the typical prejudices of the period, her to be his equal in the full sense of the word, encouraging her to develop her abilities and individualistic ideas, considering her much more mathematically gifted than himself. To a large extent it was thanks to their acquaintance that Émilie discovered her true passion and talent for science; she studied Leibniz, translated Isaac Newton’s Principia Mathematica into French, and corresponded with leading scientists of the era. Following Voltaire’s example, she examined the foundations of revealed religions (Christianity, Judaism and Islam), pointing out errors and logical contradictions she found in them, stressing the need to be guided by rationalism and tolerance, not religious fanaticism and blindness.5 One of the most famous independent works of Émilie is the Dissertation sur la nature et la propagation du feu, which addresses a theme that was extremely popular in the first half of the eighteenth century, that of heat, attempting to answer the question of whether it is a material substance or form of energy. The history of this treatise is quite peculiar. In 1737 the French Academy of Sciences (Académie Royale des Sciences) announced a contest for the best work on the subject of fire and its propagation. After many studies, Voltaire concluded that fire and light are two separate physical entities. Émilie carried out a series of experiments which led to completely different conclusions, all the while keeping the fact a secret from Voltaire. She decided to publicly announce the results of her research. Although her work did not win the competition (nor did the work of Voltaire for that matter, the winner was Leonhard Euler), by the

decision of the Academy it was issued in print (ill. 1). From today’s perspective the Dissertation is assessed as a valuable contribution to the study of body temperature, and Émilie is regarded as the first researcher who predicted the phenomenon known today as infrared radiation, or electromagnetic radiation of wavelengths between visible light and radio waves emitted by each body with a temperature of more than absolute zero.6 It is interesting to trace Jean-Louis Chanal’s modifications in the text of the Dissertation. The original consists of two parts, the first of which is entitled On the Nature of Fire (De la nature du feu) and the other On the Propagation of Fire (De la propagation du feu). The first part consists of seven chapters, the second part consists of fifteen. Jean-Louis Chanal did not make anything in the way of substantial changes. Only Chapters II and V of the second part had been divided into two chapters each, which makes the second part the version of the manuscript Gall. Fol. 150 consist of seventeen instead of fifteen chapters. It should be noted, however, that this change does not mean that those parts of the treatise have been developed. Chapter Two, which was already very short, has been artificially broken up into two parts after the final words of the second paragraph (causes qui peuvent produire ces deux effets sur les corps à deux principales). The point at which the fifth, much longer, chapter was divided came after the sentence: si son action est continuée il fait évaporer leur parties. We do not know what really led Chanal to propose such changes for they are not substantiated by the desire to make the structure of the work more transparent. The same applies to another change, which we have encountered in our manuscript: in the second part, the original chapters eight, nine and ten were rearranged, so that now they are placed in the order X - VIII - IX. This arrangement of the chapters is probably the result of a simple mistake, because it is difficult to find a logical explanation for it. In the end, what concerns the titles of the respective chapters, the differences between the two versions, if any exist, they are merely cosmetic. For example, chapter seven of the first part of the original entitled Quelles sont les propriétés distinctives du feu in the manuscript of the Berlin collection it is entitled Quelles sont les proprietés propres et distinctes du feu (fol. 13ro).

In fact, Jean-Louis Chanal had not made a radical reconstruction of the treatise of Émilie du Châtelet. The text Ms. Gall. Fol. 150 is an exact copy of the publication in print. The entire process of summarizing the original is confined to simply omitting paragraphs or sentences which he deemed less significant. Tracing the previously mentioned interlinear glosses and numerous changes


in the margins brings much more interesting results for they were made by the Krzysztof Kotuła Jean-Louis Chanal and his Version of the Treatise Dissertation sur la nature et la propagation du feu

author in a later period, when many of the paragraphs had been reconstructed in a more significant way. An analysis of just the first leaves allows us to conclude that the subsequent amendments are the only serious attempts made to introduce significant changes and clarifications to the text of Émilie du Châtelet. For the first time, the author dared to use his own wording, not satisfied with just omitting sections of the original text. These amendments appear with greater or lesser frequency from the very beginning of the manuscript. Thus, for example, fol. 4vo (ill. 2), sentence in which Émilie du Châtelet states that the rays of the moon are “thicker and denser in the focal point of a lens than those which radiate from a candle; and yet not just a candle, but also the smallest spark burns us from a distance, from which the rays of the moon in the lens do not have any impact on us” (“Ces rayons sont plus épais, plus denses, réunis dans le foyer d’un verre ardent, que ceux qui sortent de la bougie; et cependant non seulement la bougie, mais même la plus petite étincelle nous brûle à la même distance à laquelle les rayons de la Lune réunis dans ce foyer ne font aucun effet sur nous”). This line is deleted and replaced with “a small number of rays illuminate but do not give heat; so whatever the cause, which deprived the sun’s rays, reflected by the Moon, of their burning properties, it is certain that they illuminate without radiating any warmth,” (“le peu de rayons eclaire et ne nous echauffe point donc quelque soit la raison qui a depoüillé les rayons du soleil reflechis par la lune de leur vertu brulante, il est certain qu’ilz esclairent sans echaufer”). This sentence is a skillful synthesis of Émilie du Châtelet’s views expressed in the quoted paragraph and in the next two, which have been crossed out. Interestingly, it is accompanied by the conjunction “car” to the preceding sentence. The author clearly was not so much concerned with adding a simple comment, but in creating the impression of continuity and coherence of the text. Similar corrections emerge in the later parts of the manuscript. This lends

support to the theory that the author of the abridged version of the Dissertation is also the author of these glosses. These changes should be examined in greater detail, since they provide the real intention of adapting the treatise of Émilie du Châtelet to the specific needs of the recipient requiring fast and reliable access to knowledge. It is interesting to witness both for the historian of science and historian of the era, as empirical studies were the center of attention for many thinkers of the eighteenth century. The manuscript Gall. Fol. 150 is one of the many surprises found in the Berlin Collection kept at the Jagiellonian Library in Krakow.

A Note on Spanish Drama and Theater in the Berlin Collection in the Jagiellonian Library in Krakow Among the many Iberian manuscripts belonging to the Berlin collection housed in the Jagiellonian Library in Krakow, the group of texts pertaining to Spanish drama is distinguished by both its abundance and diversity. In relation to the total number of 109 manuscripts included in the ongoing research project, the group consists of twenty two catalog units bearing the following catalog numbers: Ms. Hisp. Qu. 10, Ms. Hisp. Qu. 12, Ms. Hisp. Qu. 13, Ms. Hisp. Qu. 14, Ms. Hisp. Qu. 15, Ms. Hisp. Qu. 16, Ms. Hisp. Qu. 17c, Ms. Hisp. Qu. 18, Ms. Hisp. Qu. 19, Ms. Hisp. Qu. 22, Ms. Hisp. Qu. 32a, Ms. Hisp. Qu. 35, Ms. Hisp. Qu. 67, Ms. Hisp. Qu. 68, Ms. Hisp. Qu. 69, Ms. Hisp. Qu. 70, Ms. Hisp. Qu. 71, Ms. Hisp. Qu. 72, Ms. Hisp. Qu. 73, Ms. Hisp. Qu. 74, Ms. Hisp. Qu. 77 and Ms. Hisp. Qu. 78. The volumes are made up of both individually bound handwritten texts, as well as those bound together, which combine more than one, or even a dozen or more texts. In one case (Ms. Hisp. Qu. 78) an old print had been bound together with a handwritten supplement. The volume Ms. Hisp. Qu. 16 is a particularly extensive collection including 38 texts.1 Along with volumes Ms. Hisp. Qu. 14 and Ms. Hisp. Qu. 15 it creates a kind of whole, distinguishable on account of its binding, which was made in the same style. The first two volumes, with titles on the covers, respectively, Theatro Español 1 and Theatro Español 2, contain the comedias, while the third volume, i.e. Theatro Español 3, contains the so-called teatro breve or teatro menor, such as loa, entremés, baile, baile entremesado, fin de fiesta, sainete or mojiganga. The criterion for the selection of 1 In the case of the above mentioned volume inaccuracies were found in the Siegfried Lemm catalog of 1918, for failing to include three texts, Cf.

Ms. hisp. qu. 13

handwritten texts in the volume Ms. Hisp. Qu. 18 was probably that they were all of the same genre - it is in fact a collection of fifteen entremeses. The collection does not fail to include two zarzuelas texts (Ms. Hisp. Qu. 17c and Ms. Hisp. Qu. 12), which are lyrical and dramatic forms of musical theater originating from Spain. One of them, an anonymous piece, entitled La ambición en el


gobierno y la esclavitud de España, in the Berlin collection, exists in two copies, Anna Rzepka A Note on Spanish Drama and Theater in the Berlin Collection in the Jagiellonian Library in Krakow

dating from the eighteenth century (Ms. Hisp. Qu. 17c and Ms. Hisp. Qu. 32a).2 These manuscripts, as well as others from this described group can certainly provide interesting material for studying Spanish theater and drama, primarily from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. This is shown by the works and the names of their authors, mainly from this period. For example, in the volume Ms. Hisp. Qu. 14 there is a manuscript of the play entitled El mejor representante, San Ginés. Comedia famosa de tres ingenios de la corte, an adaptation of Lope de Vega’s Lo fingido verdadero, written in co-authorship with Antonio Martínez de Meneses (1608-1661), Jerónimo de Cáncer (¿1599? -1655) and Pedro Rosete Niño (in the first half of the seventeenth century). Other examples of manuscripts of plays from this period are: Loa para la comedia El defensor de su agravio by Agustín Moreto (1618-1669) from the volume Ms. Hisp. Qu. 13, and El encanto del Olvido by Juan de la Hoz y Mota, who lived in the years 1622-1714 (Ms. Hisp. Qu. 15). The Berlin collection also includes the work of one of most esteemed Spanish playwrights of the eighteenth century, Ramón de la Cruz (1731-1794), a handwritten version of the Spanish farce play sainete, entitled Las castañeras picadas (Ms. Hisp. Qu. 35). Codicological, historical and texual studies carried out within the framework of the project, realized in particular stages, allow for a more comprehensive collection of data necessary to indicate where the texts from the Berlin

2 In the collection of Biblioteca Nacional de España, there are three zarzuela manuscripts from the eighteenth-century with the same title, the volume marked with catalog number Mss / 17074 contains a note most probably made by the author of the work: “Dicen que el author de esta comedia fué D.N. Ledesma, consejero de hacienda, a quien descubrió un Paje y dieron muerte dos enmascarados que entraron en su cuarto,” Cf. Catálogo de las piezas de teatro que se conservan en el Departamento de Manuscritos de la Biblioteca Nacional, Blass, Tipográfica SA, Madrid, 1934, p. 21 Other manuscripts of the zarzuela from Biblioteca Nacional de España, bear the catalog number: Mss / Mss 16320 and / 15365.

collection belong as far as the tradition of manuscripts of Spanish drama is concerned. It seems these findings may be of particular importance due to the fact that to a large extent we are dealing with the works of authors who are now all but forgotten. This is the case with Antonio Benito Vidaurre y Orduña (1724-1780): it is presumably his name which is signed on seven manuscripts scattered in the volumes of Ms. Hisp. Qu. 12, Ms. Hisp. Qu. 15, Ms.. Hisp. Qu. 16, and Ms. Hisp. Qu. 18. As has been ascertained, five of the aforementioned texts which were signed with the name Vidaurre were probably written by the same hand, and the characteristic initials and signatures repeated on the leaves suggest that we are dealing with autograph manuscripts. Only the manuscripts Ms. Hisp. Qu. 16al and Ms. Hisp. Qu. 15d are written in the hand of another scribe, but even these bear the recognizable signature of a shape known from the other manuscripts. Concise information on the biography and works of this author is delivered in a work from 1791, prepared by Joseph Antonio Álvarez y Baena.3 In it we learn that Vidaurre, in his time, distinguished himself as a poet, and in the field of drama “[...] he always tried to imitate the style of Pedro Calderón, with great success [...]. [He wrote] various loas, sainetes and other lyrical works, though only a few of these have survived since before his death, he ordered that they be burned.”4 If confirmed, this information can increase the value of the preserved manuscripts of Vidaurre in the Berlin collection housed at the Jagiellonian Library. They represent genres such as the comedia, zarzuela, sainete, loa, baile and entremés, yet none of these titles of manuscripts in the Berlin collection are among those specified in Álvarez’s study. Not only the names of the authors of individual works are valuable in terms of information that can lead to significant findings, but also other members of the circle of people involved in theater can be relevant, such as the names of actors included in the titles of certain manuscripts, often in conjunction with the date of the artistic season in which the acting troupe staged its play.

Qu. 16, in this context, two names appear several times, that of Manuel Guerrero (second half of the eighteenth century), Madrid’s famous actor, acclaimed author of dramatic works and poetry,5 and María Hidalgo (1700-1797), his wife, who had gained acclaim for her outstanding beauty and talent for drama, but above all for creating works for the stage, rather than

rido (died 1761), distinguished as a precursor of tonadillas in comedies.7 As an example it is worth citing these selected titles from this volume: Introducción de empezar para el baile de la S.ra Theresa Garrido (manuscript u), Loa para empezar la compañía de Manuel Guerrero, año de 1753 (manuscript ai) or the piece dated a year later Loa para empezar la temporada en la compañía de la Sra. María Hidalgo, año de 1754. An anonymous manuscript entitled Jerusalen Libertada. Comedia Famosa (Ms. Hisp. Qu. 22) is especially intriguing in light of research examining the presence and influence of Tasso’s epic poem Jerusalem Delivered (La Gerusalemme liberata) in Spanish literature. Among other scholars, Stefano Arata became interested in this theme, in relation to the play discovered in the Biblioteca del Palacio Real in Madrid, entitled La Conquista de Jerusalén por Godofre de Bullón, he took into consideration the likely attribution of authorship to Miguel de Cervantes.8 The controversy surrounding this issue remains vibrant, as evidenced by the recently published article by Máximo Brioso Sánchez and Héctor Brioso Santos.9 A comparison of the text of the manuscript from the Berlin collection Jerusalen Libertada with the Madrid manuscript discovered by Arata,10 leaves no doubt that in both cases we are dealing with different works. In addition, further textual research has pointed towards evidence that the manuscript from Königliche Bibliothek in Berlin is copy of the drama connect5 Huerta Calvo, Javier; Peral Vega, Emilio; Urzaiz Tortajada, Héctor, Teatro Español de la A a la Z, Espasa Calpe, Madrid, 2005, p. 356. 6 Gómez García, Manuel, Diccionario del Teatro, Ediciones Akal, S.

ed with the figure of Antonio Enríquez Gómez (1600-1660). Lemm’s catalogue of 1918 confirmed that authorship, however, not without a question mark.11 In turn, the codicological and historical data indicate that this is probably a copy made in the eighteenth century. The works of two of the finest dramatists of the Spanish Golden Age the-


ater, Lope de Vega (1562-1635) and Pedro Calderón de la Barca (1600-1681), Anna Rzepka A Note on Spanish Drama and Theater in the Berlin Collection in the Jagiellonian Library in Krakow

are also present in the Berlin collection, though not in great numbers. Due to the importance of both playwrights and the prominent place they occupy in the history of Spanish theater, the Berlin manuscripts bearing their names or related to them in any way should be given greater attention, a closer analysis is currently in progress. In this article, we are above all pointing out their presence in the collection, situating them against a wider backdrop of the entire group of manuscripts representing Spanish drama. In the case of Lope de Vega, the Berlin collection housed in the Jagiellonian Library includes four manuscripts of his plays, grouped together in volumes Ms. Hisp. Qu. 77 and Ms. Hisp. Qu. 78. The first volume contains the handwritten copies (manuscripts) of three works: La mayor virtud de un rey, El guante de doña Blanca and Sembrar en buena tierra. The latter volume, consists of Lope de Vega’s manuscript entitled Amar, servir y esperar binded together with seven old prints - all of the texts are comedies by Spanish playwrights who lived and worked in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.12 The old prints come from a Spanish printing house in Seville and Madrid: the typographers’ names were, among others, Juan de San Martin en Madrid, and Doña Theresa de Guzman en Madrid, and the name of the print shop, among others, Imprenta Real Casa del Correo Viejo en Sevilla. The date 1743 and 1748 appearing on the old prints allows us to assume that the accompanying manuscript was probably from the same period. Moreover, in the Berlin collection, in the volume bearing the helfmark Ms. Hisp. Qu. 15 figuring as manuscript d, there is a copy of a play entitled De donde tienen su origen los Monteros de Espinosa. In his catalog, Lemm had attri-

buted this text to Lope de Vega, referring to the work “Catálogo bibliográfico y biográfico del teatro antiguo español: desde sus orígenes hasta mediados del siglo XVIII” by Cayetano Alberto de la Barrera y Leirado. This Spanish author points to a play of a similar title, namely Los Monteros de Espinosa as “comedia inédita (¿perdida?)” in the legacy of Lope de Vega.13 Moreover, Lemm was familiar with H.A. Rennert’s study on, “The Life of Lope de Vega (1562-1635),” where he also mentioned the drama entitled Los Monteros de Espinosa as a work by Lope de Vega.14 However, some of the data in these studies, though certainly valid at the time the German catalogue was being written, have undergone some clarification. Also, the long-lasting controversy surrounding the issue of authorship and dating of Los Monteros de Espinosa has presumably reached a compelling resolution: it is currently considered that this is an anonymous theater play of the eighteenth century, probably written in 1780, though this date is still questionable.15 This doubt concerning the work’s date seems justified in light of the materials studied by J.E. Varey and Charles Davis, who in the repertoire of Madrid’s Teatro del Príncipe of June 1718 drew attention to a drama entitled Donde tienen su origen de los Monteros Espinosa, a play with an apparently similar title to the manuscript appearing in the Berlin volume Ms.. Hisp. Qu. 15. In their study, Varey and Davis wrote a concise description of this work claiming “it is more likely an anonymous adaptation”16 than a drama written by Lope de Vega. In turn, Irene Vallejo González analyzing a review which appeared in a magazine issued in Valladolid called “Diario Pinciano” referring to the theatrical season of 1787-1788 also mentions a play entitled “Donde tienen su origen los Monteros de Espinosa - comedia anónima del s. XVIII.”17

In summary, based on these reports it can be assumed that in the case of the manuscript from Königliche Bibliothek in Berlin, we are dealing with a copy of that anonymous Spanish work from the eighteenth century. It is possible that new information will arise in the course of a comparative analysis of the text in the Berlin collection with its modern edition, such as the edition prepared by


William P. Cooke, Los Monteros de Espinosa: Comedia anónima del siglo XVIII.18 Anna Rzepka A Note on Spanish Drama and Theater in the Berlin Collection in the Jagiellonian Library in Krakow

This analysis will be conducted within the framework of the ongoing project, consisting of textual research. The Berlin collection also contains a handwritten copy of the work of Calderón, bearing the title of Auto sacramental alegórico: La protestación de la Fee de Don Pedro Calderon de la Barca, in the volume Ms. Hisp. Qu. 13.19 The same volume also includes a copy of the printed version of Carta que Don Pedro Calderón de la Barca escrive al publico de la Corte de Madrid, desde el Retiro de la sepultura, dando cuenta como el auto titulado Protestación de la fe, no es obra suya es, aunque se la aproprian [...]. Combining these two texts within a single volume is not accidental; the autograph manuscript: La protestación de la fe, held in the Biblioteca Nacional in Madrid,20 is accompanied by two versions of Carta, one is a manuscript and other is a print. As Gregory Peter Andrachuk points out, Carta played an important role in the controversy concerning the authorship of La protestación de la fe, which in present times no longer raises any doubt among scholars.21 Furthermore, the discussed manuscripts also include the text entitled Loa Sacramental El juego de el Soldado Para el auto de la Protestación de la Fee, figuring in the same volume and seems intriguing in light of the information contained in the study “Manual bibliográfico calderoniano” about “Loa sin título Va de juego el soldado”22 and certainly requires further

analysis. There is also other data found in the same work that may prove useful in the course of studying the two remaining manuscripts in the Berlin collection associated with the name Calderón: Auto sacramental alegorico El Lirio y La Espiga, y Triumphos de Amor Divino de Don Pedro Calderon de la Barca (Ms. Hisp. Qu. 13i) and El Lucero de Castilla y Privado Perseguido (Ms. Hisp. Qu. 72).23


Apart from works of leading dramatists in the history of Spanish theater, the Anna Rzepka A Note on Spanish Drama and Theater in the Berlin Collection in the Jagiellonian Library in Krakow

Berlin collection also contains copies of works created for the stage by many other authors, mainly from the period from the eighteenth to the early twentieth century, which by today’s criteria are assigned various levels of importance, ranging from: the significant and distinctive, to the completely unheard of or forgotten. For example, it is worth mentioning a few names and titles: El Viting by Cándido María Trigueros (Ms. Hisp. Qu. 74), Comedia nueba intitulada El valor sin ambición y El Amor afortunado by Santos Díez González (Ms. Hisp. Qu. 73), La mujer del Tremendo: diálogo en verso original de Gabriel Briones (Ms. Hisp. Qu. 70), Tares en Lesbos by Manuel Hernando Pizarro (?) (Ms. Hisp. Qu. 69), Malos amores by Julián R. del Villar (Ms. Hisp. Qu. 68) or Estado Actual. Tragicomedia original de costumbres by Ángel González Carbajo (Ms. Hisp. Qu. 71 – autograph manuscript?) For a more complete understanding of the group of Berlin manuscripts from the circle of the Spanish theater, it should be added that it includes not only the texts of plays, but also a number of documents connected to the theme of Spanish theater. One of the documents is a copy of the memorandum of the bishop of the diocese of Orihuela-Alicante, addressed to King Philip V of Spain (1759-1788), with a request to issue a prohibition of theatrical performances and operas (Ms. Hisp. Fol. 7c). The date of 1774 contained in the text allows us, in all likelihood, to identify its author as José Tormo, Bishop of the Diocese of Orihuela-Alicante in the years 1767-1790. While in volume Ms Hisp. 25 there are two texts written in verse referring to the aforementioned Teresa Garrido: the first praising her for talent for acrostic poetry followed by a letter written to her in verse, signed with the name María Ladvenant y Quiriante (1741-1767), the prematurely deceased, famous actress, known as la divina (“divine”), who had led a turbulent life in Madrid’s theater circle.

The Berlin collection of manuscripts housed in the Jagiellonian Library in Krakow, considered in its entirety, certainly constitutes a valuable source of material, for it is still virtually untouched by researchers, which can contribute to the enrichment of what is currently known about the legacy of the Spanish drama manuscripts, as well as many other aspects associated with it.


Watermarks in Romance-language manuscripts from the Berlin Collection at the Jagiellonian Library in Krakow – Part 2 Watermarks that we reproduce on the following pages come from Romancelanguage manuscripts from the Berlin collection presently held at the Jagiellonian Library in Krakow. This collection is not an archive. The cases in which we can precisely determine the date and the place of a manuscript’s execution, thus also about the paper on which the manuscript is made, are not numerous. Among the oldest paper manuscripts, there are a dozen or so in which the watermarks are identical to the reproductions available in the Briquet and Piccard repertories. We were also able to find some of the later watermarks in other repertories. We do not reproduce here those watermarks that already have been identified and dated in other collections. As we lack comparative tools, especially when it comes to the papers dated after the sixteenth century, we decided to progressively publish in Fibula examples of various watermarks that we were able to date. We have started with Italian manuscripts (Fibula 3), now we continue with French ones. There is a connection between two parts (Italian and French) in the manuscript gall. fol. 145, written in French but in Italy, mostly on Italian papers. The reproductions will be listed according to their catalogue number and according to their format: in folio, in quarto, in octavo. To make searching easier, an index of motifs appearing in the watermarks will be provided, with references to the relevant catalogue numbers.
