Forais Novos do Reinado de D. Manuel
José Manuel Garcia
This work sets out to present and reproduce one of the most valuable treasures of the library of Banco de Portugal, namely its collection of eleven new royal charters (forais novos) granted during the Reign of King Dom Manuel I, reproduced herein in their entirety.
The study of these documents, carried out by José Manuel Garcia, an expert in Portuguese Discoveries and Expansion history, reflects the importance of the most relevant grounding reforms undertaken by Dom Manuel I, which are presented here in a clear and profusely illustrated manner.
