 Santa Anna, Antonio López de. Jose Maria Tornel y Mendivil; Juan Suárez y Navarro; Lino J. Alcorta, Archive of 47 Mexican Manuscript and Printed Documents -Laws, Decrees, Circulars- from the Ministry of War and Navy: June - December 1853
Santa Anna, Antonio López de. Jose Maria Tornel y Mendivil; Juan Suárez y Navarro; Lino J. Alcorta
Archive of 47 Mexican Manuscript and Printed Documents -Laws, Decrees, Circulars- from the Ministry of War and Navy: June - December 1853
[Tacubaya], 1853. First edition. Loose leaves disbound from a later made-up volume. [77 pp.] on 43 leaves, some folded. Folio. Beginning on June 1, 1853, shortly after Santa Anna's return to Mexico as dictator, and ending December 29, 1853, just two weeks after he extended his rule indefinitely and had himself given the title of "most serene highness," these documents cover a period of three leaders in the Ministry of War and Navy: Jose Maria Tornel y Mendivil, Juan Suárez y Navarro, and Lino J. Alcorta; all prominent santannistas. Eight are issued by Tornel, the most federalist of Santa Anna's advisors, who fell ill and died in September 1853; ten are issued by Juan Suárez y Navarro, chief administrator of the Ministry of War -the first document noting "por enfermedad de su S. E. J. Suarez Navarro" on September 10th- who coveted the position as Minster of War and Navy, but broke with Santa Anna just three weeks later when Lino J. Alcorta was appointed minister in his stead, and who issued the remaining twenty- nine documents. Thirteen of the documents are printed; 34 are in manuscript, either originals or perhaps manuscripts reproduced by an early form heliography. Similar documents were described by Dr. W. Michael Mathes in a 2004 auction catalogue as "an early form of holography [i.e. heliography] using a concentrated beam of sunlight to transfer text, a process employed in Mexico during a brief period between 1850 and 1856 for short runs and to avoid printing delays and costs. Lithography was impractical for such short-run imprints, as it was extraordinarily costly, took weeks, and presented difficulties in reproducing the writer's hand." In a few instances the date on the manuscript documents differs from that of the later publication. The documents are primarily concerned with bringing professionalism and discipline to the army (and the nation), stemming desertions and bolstering the draft (though exempting indigenous peoples), punishing theft and corruption, building fortifications and other public works, increasing weaponry, and creating militias. OCLC locates no copies of any of these individual documents, though some of the printed items are held at Berkeley, and except for the auction noted above, we could find no listings, catalogue holdings, or auction records for items reproduced in a similar fashion to those included. Detailed listing upon request. Overall very good.

 [Buenos Aires]. [Funes, Gregorio], Gazeta Extraordinaria de Buenos-Ayres, Lunes 15 de Abril de 1811
[Buenos Aires]. [Funes, Gregorio]
Gazeta Extraordinaria de Buenos-Ayres, Lunes 15 de Abril de 1811
(Buenos Aires), (Real Imprenta de Niños Expósitos), 1811. First edition. Disbound in three original quires. [127 - 145] pp. 8vo. The Gazeta, in its current form, started in 1810 with the May Revolution, was written by Mariano Moreno, and was intended to support the Junta, as well as describe events in Argentina and other neighboring countries and from Europe and the Americas. The issues with 'Extraordinaria' in the title were outside the normal publication, and issued without numbers. So important was the publication that the government ordered it read aloud at chapels after mass. The government was fluid, and Moreno was shoved aside by Cornelio Saavedra and the clergyman Gregorio Funes, who organized a second revolution that took place on April 5th and 6th. Whereas the May Revolution had been a revolution of the urban bourgeoisie, of the "decent people"- the merchant and intellectual elite, the April event mobilized urban workers and laborers for the first time on the banks of the Plaza de la Victoria in order to remove Morenistas. See Daniel Morán, "La historiografía de la revolución. La participación plebeya durante las guerras de independencia en el Perú y el Río de la Plata", Nuevo Mundo Mundos Nuevos [Online], Debates, Online since 30 May 2011]. Funes would author the communiqué in defense of the Junta, in this Gazeta Extraordinaria issue of Lunes 15 de Abril 1811: "Manifesto sobre antecedentes, y origen del suceso de la noche del 5 y 6 del corriente." Furlong notes: "Oficio de los alcaldes, a la Junta, dirigiéndole las diez y ocho peticiones del pueblo; y pidiendo su cumplimiento. Peticiones del pueblo: explicaciones. Circular que, en sustancia y con la sola diferencia de la expresión, se ha pasado a sus respectivos cabildos, por los diputados, para precaver toda siniestra prevención, Ínterin se publicaba todo lo ocurrido, para inteligencia y general satisfacción de las provincias." Issues of the Gazeta are uncommon in the trade, Gazeta Extraordinaria and early issues even more so. The only issues before 1813 that we could find were at the Sotheby's sale of May 8, 1961 (lot 64A) purchased by Maggs. Furlong IV: 2565. Palau 96378 (Reimpression). Zinny: p.48. A very good copy, old stitch holes, very faint numeral 7 inked to top margin of title page.

Loi Relative Aux Moyens de Secourir la Colonie de Saint-Domingue. Donnée à Paris, le 29 Juin 1792, L'an IV. De la Liberté. Consignée Dans Les Registres Du Départment de la Meurthe, le 24 Juillet Suivant. [No. 1412]
Nancy [France], Chez Haener, Imprimeur du Départment de la Meurthe, 1792. First edition. Self wrappers. 4 pp. Illus. with a woodcut headpiece. Sm. 4to. Signed (illegible). Law authorizing negotiation with the United States minister to obtain food and construction materials in the amount of 4,000,000 livres, to be paid by the French Treasury but to be reimbursed by taxes on the colony. The money was much needed as the loan decree, dated 26 Juin 1792, came in the midst of unparalleled upheaval in Haiti. The revolution of the year before, with its "horrible carnage" had now given way "to strategic military operations, tactical maneuvers and new political alliances as the slaves gain territory and stabilize their positions. They raid plantations for military equipment, loot the whites' forces after they are repelled, and trade with the Spanish for weaponry" (Kona Shen, History of Haiti, The Revolution Builds, Brown University. library.brown.edu/haitihistory/6.html). Toussaint Louverture is a rising star, Civil Commissions arrive from France, free blacks and mulattos in Saint-Domingue are granted equal political rights, Spain declares war on England and France, and battle ensues for control of Haiti. The U.S. is concerned with conditions on the island and in fact Jefferson writes of his concern to the Marquis de Lafayette (16 June 1792). Rare. OCLC, BN France, and other European Libraries locate no copies of this issue (No. 1412, with additional text concerning the Departement de la Meurthe). A Paris printing (No. 1813) can be found at Cornell, Univ. Minn. and JCB which also has a Toulouse printing. Manioc (Bibliotheque) shows a digitized version of the Paris imprint. A very good copy with pin holes along inner margin, two soiled spots, signed in ink on last page.
