1701 - LYON TO BERGAMO VIA SWITZERLAND DUE TO SPANISH SUCCESSION WAR
Country: LOMBARDY VENETIA
Condition: 1701 - LYON TO BERGAMO VIA SWITZERLAND DUE TO SPANISH SUCCESSION WAR
Description: FROM DR. MIGLIAVACCA'S CERTIFICATE: -- FRANCE – 11 January 1701, entire letter from LYON to a merchant at Bergamo (Republic of Venice). The address side of the letter shows a red crayon mark indicating postage paid at destination for delivery from the Swiss border. Red crayon marks and postal rates are typical of the Republic of Venice. The verso shows remnants of the dry seal that secured the two joining portions of the folded letter sheet. The letter was delivered by the Lyon couriers, routed via Switzerland, Geneva, Bellinzona, and Chiavenna. The traditional route via Piedmont and Milan was discontinued due to a realistic threat of hostilities stemming from the impending War of Spanish Succession. The unusually long text deals with bales of fabric that reached Lyon. The agent of the Bergamo merchant points out that one of the bales suffered from water damage due to poor packaging, it was however sold at a reduced price. In concluding, the agent elaborates about the market situation.   I have examined the above captioned letter, the address side of which is photographically reproduced* here. In my opinion, the document is genuine in all respects and in fine condition. I initialled it “GM” in pencil————— This certificate is printed on acid-free High Security paper with features that may partially show if photocopied or scanned, including microprint, watermark, hidden pantograph, erasure protection etc.
