Salt Census 1631. Book I

Portada de la publicación

The 1631 Salt Census was conducted under the reign of Philip IV. It is a result of the establishment of a new salt taxation system, salt being an essential item whose monopoly belonged to the Crown. Its scope covered the mainland territories of the Crown of Castile.

The work consists of two volumes

Volume I. Neighbourhood: this includes the statistical tables for each one of the salt-producing parties included in the transcription, to which the current names of the places and their corresponding INE codes have been added.

The information is completed with an explanatory comment for the Neighbourhood, different índices, census terminology, sources and bibliography, as well as an annex with maps and salt maps.

Volume II. Transcription: the INE has carried out the transcription of the document, using the original manuscript preserved at the General Archive of Simancas.
