This document is unique and rare, probably only two copies have been made. One is in the village’s archives in Hungary and one in my collection. Through this document, Joannes Nepomucenus Csaky de Keresztszegh (Hungarian: Janos Nepomuk Csaky) asks the Emperor Joseph II (1764-1790) to do his business (trade) and property in the Kingdom of Hungary, then, for his county Terra Scepusiensis (an area from the Empire). The document shows the entire emperor’s title (something typical when a document is addressed to him), followed by the request. Joannes’s delegate to Buda was a Stephanus (Stefan) Man. The document was recalled (quote): “given in the free, royal and metropolitan city of Buda, (in) October 2, the year of the Lord of 1785”. is The document is handwritten and has the noble family blazon. This is a very rare piece of history. Size is 50×38 cm.
