Scarce document signed by King James V, the father of Mary, Queen of Scots

King of Scotland (born 1512) from 1513 until his death in 1542. Known for his intolerance of heresy which resulted in the executions of such prominent church reformers as Patrick Hamilton, James fathered not only his successor, Mary, Queen of Scots, but as many as nine illegitimate children. Scarce manuscript DS, signed “James R,” one page, 12 x 5.75, February 3, 1526. Untranslated official document signed at the conclusion by King James V of Scotland. In very good to fine condition, with a missing seal, scattered light foxing and soiling, and minor paper loss along the intersecting folds.
