Extremely rare document signed by Henry VII

King of England and Lord of Ireland from his seizing of the crown on August 22, 1485, until his death on April 21, 1509, and the first monarch of the House of Tudor. Rare vellum manuscript DS, in Early Modern English, signed “H. R.,” one page, 8 x 3.5, December 22, 1498. Untranslated official document, boldly signed at the head by King Henry VII. In very good to fine condition, with some light toning, and a semicircular stain to the bottom edge. Accompanied by an unsigned engraving. A fantastic document from this controversial king, and just the second Henry VII we have offered.
