Description

This ancient scrap of handwritten Latin script was together with a 1660 publication by C. Jacquinet describing the ornaments produced by the gunsmiths of Paris (France) in the 17th century. Its age is hard to determine, but 17th century or before are both sensible guesses, for now. When translated, this ancient text contradicts a Wikipedia article relating to the County of Holland: (url)http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/County_of_Holland(/url). This article says that the first ruler of the County of Holland (Hollant) was Floris (Florence) II in 1101. The title of this scrap of Latin script says (Who first of all used the title of Holland?). It goes on to say (Theodore V, son of Florence I, in the year 1075 succeeded his father. This man is the first who used the title of Holland). This is stated as something that Dousa(?) discovered. (Janus Dousa (1545 – 1604) was a Dutch historian and first librarian at Leiden University, a reasonable source for this information.) Latin writing on the reverse of this same scrap of paper is just as intriguing. See here: .
