Catalogue Note

Juan de Maqueda Balderrama (or Valderrama), from Seville, was born around 1550 and became an officer of the Inquisition in 1579; this is his grant of nobility. The binding is very similar to others produced in the Granada chancery (see Exposicion de encuadernaciones españolas, plate XXIX, with the same border and the same shell, lion's head and corner stamps).
