Old Spanish manuscript
I have a 15th--16th century manuscript (partchment0 official Spanish signed surname--Lancho,Sancho, '''? mentioning the name Columbus many times within about 25 lines about 18 inches wide all hand written.I'm certain it is old Spanish, but the script hand-writing is difficult to translate.I bought this many years ago along with many signed manuscripts of kings in Europe from the 14th-16th century.Does anyone have any idea as to whom I can send this potentially valuable manuscript in order to have it translated.I imagine someone into ancient languages at a university may be able to help me.I am willing to give a percentage of its value to any one able to help in its translation.I bought this with other very valuable papers about 20 years ago. Thanks John Leritz Clearwater,Fl
Thanks--that/s what I'll do John
The signature is more likely to be Sancho, as this is a Spanish name.
"Old" Spanish is relatively easy to understand. I should think the Spanish department of any university will be able to help you. Or you could try posting a transcription here and see if anyone would be able to translate it
