Title : Cape of Good Hope Manuscript Landgrant, 1680..
Map maker : COGH Council of Policy.
Date : Cape of Good Hope, 1680.
Size : 12.6 x 7.9 inches. / 32.0 x 20.0 cm.
Colouring : Uncoloured

Description :A one-sheet 1680 Cape of Good Hope landgrant, in favour of Hans Calmbach(?), who had been a Corporal in the service of the VOC Company. Also mentions a Jacomina and Hendrick (_?) who were probably involved in the transaction. Dated 20 January 1680, this grant is signed below the words "Ons Present" meaning "We are Present" (and signing) by members of the Council of Policy, especially Salomon de Leeuw. A neat landgrant on one page in good to excellent condition without any noticable rust marks or water stains, but with a small amount of marginal fraying and traces of old folds.

The VOC Headquarters gave specific orders that land grants should not be given to individuals, hoping that the first settlers would farm communally and believing perhaps correctly that under the circumstances and time, output would be greater. However, as early as 1677 private land grants started being issued by the Council of Policy in defiance of the VOC Company Headquarters.

Condition : Very Good. Uneven paper, probably common for the era. No text on verso. No stains, some marginal fraying, one small 10 mm tear back-strengthened with archival tape. Minor tracing of old folds, now flattened.
