ESPOSICION QUE EL GENERAL D. MARIANO PAREDES Y ARRILLAGA HACE A SUS CONCUIDADANOS, EN MANIFESTACION DE SU CONDUCTA POLITICA, MILITAR Y ECONOMICA EN LA PRESENTE REVOLUCION.
Mexico: Impreso por I. Cumplido, 1841. First edition. 28 pp. Plus folding table. Small vignette of a cannon mounted on a wheeled carriage on last page. Lacks wraps. 8vo. Very good. Mariano Paredes (1797-1849), commander-in-chief of Jalisco, led a revolt against President Anastasio Bustamente and joined forces with Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna to issue the Plan of Tacubaya on September 25, 1841, denouncing the Bustamente government. In this _Esposicion_, issued in October 1841, Paredes explains the purpose of his revolution, notes his alliance with the powerful Santa Anna, and includes six appendices containing his pronouncements leading up to the revolution, including a letter to Bustamente dated September 25, 1841, the day the Plan of Tacubaya was announced. Among the charges he levels at Bustamente is that he did not pursue the reconquest of Texas: "it has been four years he has repeatedly said we are going to conquer Texas…. [but] we don't have even one miserable boat to oppose the _ridiculous_ little squadron of Texas." Bustamente soon resigned and Santa Anna became president, but did little to honor Paredes, who then turned against him and led another revolution in 1845. He served as President of Mexico for seven months at the beginning of the Mexican-American War in 1846.
