Manuscript, 20 October 1812, 30×21.5cm, two attacted documents written in French (left column) and Dutch (right column). The first document concerns a report of an auction where Nicolaas Huisenbeek, Gerrit Huisenbeek and Willem van Ronselen auction off a house and property in Amsterdam: ‘een hegt, sterk en weldoortimmerd huis en erve, staande en geleege op de Haarlemmerdijk tusschen de Korte Prinsegragt en de Binnen Brouwerstraat geteekened D:12 G:30 No. 280 wijk 52 no. 1585’. First there is a bid by a realtor named Reinier Jonker (f. 2875,-) and later by another realtor Jan Palmboom Junior (f. 3150,- plus f.60,- for the mirrors) whose bid is accepted provided he reveals his master's name timely and that all conditions are met. This document (12 pp.) was written in presence of Matthijs Priem (hairdresser) and Anthonie Leeseberg (carpenter) and signed by notary J.A. Molster.
Attached is another document (7 pp.) which is referred to in the first document as ‘memorie van aankoop en lasten (…) waarvan een extract aan het afschrift zal worden vastgehegt (…)’. The title of the attached document reads: ‘Extract – Memorie van verkoop of Veilconditie’. It states the terms and conditions of the auction. This document is written in a very small hand, again in two columns and two languages (French on the left, Dutch on the right) and also signed by J.A. Molster, notary.
