'S-GRAVENHAGE -- "KORTE NOTULEN en Aantekeningen Van't verhandelde in de resp. vergaderingen van de Ed. Agtbare Heren Schout, Burgemeesteren, Schepenen en Vroedschappen van S'Gravenhage sedert den 25 November 1748 [tot en met] 9 Julij 1770". Ms. on laid paper, (61) lvs. r° and v°, followed by 45 blanks. Bound in 4°, richly gilt dec. cf. 18th c. binding.Manuscript with notes - most probably - by Carel de Lille (1721-1770), who joined the 'College van Burgemeesters' in 1748 and somewhat later became burgomaster of The Hague. The notes, which seem to have been made for private use, contain information on financial matters, appointments, events and daily life in the city. Containing intriguing observations, for example on April 15th 1768: "Verzoek van de Jooden om in het paruikemakers gilde te mogen worden geadmitteert, gelaten aan Burgemeesteren om te schikken". We are almost certain that the handwriting is by De Lille himself, because on the v° of the first free endpaper has been written: "Volgens aanteekening van mijn vader, is het wapen van De Lille (…)". The last note is dated July 9th 1770 (De Lille died on August 3rd 1770). In a very fine binding, 1 role resembling the one used by the Star-and-Rosette Bindery (Storm v. L. IIa, p. 55), but the other decorations which are applied unfortunately do not match this attribution.
