Anew  Wheat  instead  of  Barley  for  any  Brew

Decree Of Charles I, Duke of Brunswick-Luneburg (1713-1780), ordering in view of a very good wheat-harvest and subsequently considerably fallen prices to use again wheat instead of barley as brewing cereals. Published Wolfenbüttel December 18, 1741. Without place & printer (1741). 33.5 x 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 (offer nos. 12,599 ff.).

On Charles, nephew of the Emperor Charles VI, brother-in-law of Frederick the Great, founder of the Collegium Carolinum, governing since 1735, see ADB XV, 266 ff., on Münchhausen ibid. XXII, 728 f.
