[Communication of the very many natural things which dwell in the province of St. Vincent (now São Paulo) systematically described] pp. 127-178. The Spanish Jesuit missionary José de Anchieta (1534 -1597) was one of the founders of São Paulo (1554) and Rio de Janeiro a decade later. Best known for his book "The Art of Grammar" on the indigenous Old Tupi language, he was also an accomplished naturalist as revealed in this work. Also bound in the first two sections of this volume are 1. Breve relação dos escrituras dos gentios da India Oriental, e dos seus costumes (pp. 1-59) [A short account of the gentios of India and their customs] and 2. Noticia summaria do gentilismo da Asia (pp. 61-126) [A short account of paganism in Asia]; these have been attributed by Francisco Maria Esteves Pereria to Fernão de Queiroz, a 17th c. Jesuit, whose translation of the Bhagavad-Gita was only first published in 1922, and may have been the first translation into a western language of that work. Esteves Pereria considered it a sequel to the two pieces contained in this volume (see Ethel Pope: India in Portuguese Literature, (Bastorá: Tipografia Rangel, 1937; pp. 166-168). The "Collecção" would eventually run to seven volumes published over 30 years. Quite uncommon. Last partial or complete set at auction in 1948. 2. [BRAZIL]. CAMPOS PORTO, M.E. [MANUEL ERNESTO DE].

A most crucial and important decree introduced by Sebastiao Jose de Carvalho e Mello, Marques de Pombal to abolish Indian slavery in Portuguese Amazonia and restore Indian rights. It also ended up favoring the newly formed Companhia Geral do GrãoPará e Maranhão, established the same year by the Marquis of Pombal as a monopolistic trading company, which would use African slaves rather than have a need for indigenous peoples and thus undercut the power of the Jesuits; when the Jesuits tried to avoid the emancipation law by transferring the titles of their aldeias to the Pope, the Crown took away their temporal power over the mission villages: the Jesuits would be expelled from Brazil four years later. "Unfortunately for the Jesuits, complaints made by Paulo de Silva Nunes over a period of many years now began to bear fruit. Pombal was determined to spare no effort to humble the missionaries who seemed to be defying his authority. To Pombal the temporal authority and resources of the missions were an anachronism. It was his wish that priests confine themselves purely to spiritual labors. This would naturally preclude the operation of missions by the missionaries... Pombal decided to develop the commercial resources of the Maranhão through a plan which involved the liberation of the Indians, the secularization of the administration of the aldeias, and the establishment of a commercial company, the Companhia de Grão Pará e Maranhão. The Indians, instead of being limited to work on the missions and certain private plantations, would now be free to hire themselves for work anywhere they wished. They would continue to live in their villages, near the white settlements, but under secular authority. The Company would take care of the needs of the colony, receiving a monopoly of shipping, external commerce and Negro slaves. In furtherance of the plan, Pombal decreed the liberation of the Indians on June 6, 1755... Reference is made to the misery of the people, white and Indian, in the state of Maranhao. The purpose of the law was to free the Indians, to give them full liberty advocated in the past by the Supreme Pontiffs and by the Portuguese kings, which the cupidity of men had hitherto prevented," Mathias C. Kiemen, The Indian Policy of Portugal in America, in The Americas, Vol. 5, No. 4 (Apr., 1949), pp. 451-452). OCLC locates five copies: Newberry, NYPL, Univ. Minn., BL, and JCB.

Dated 3 de Mayo de 1757 and signed: Francisco Xavier de Mendoça Furtado [governador], followed by the Alvará dated 17 de Agosto de 1758 and signed: Sebastiaõ Joseph de Carvalho e Mello. The original law to abolish Indian slavery in Pará and Maranhaõ was passed June 6, 1755, but Pombal, who had seen to its passing, and his halfbrother, Furtado, "immediately began to worry... that the Indians would revert to their primitive laziness." Instead of working for the colonists or the state they would be more concerned with their families. Thus Governor Furtado did not bother to published the law until two years later in this document in 1757 where he added this new system, Directorio de Indios, which placed a white director into each native village, directors who would supposedly teach the Indians to be civilized and encourage commerce, promote intermarriage between Indians and Portuguese, and lead them to become rich Christians. "In return for supposed teaching the Indians the Portuguese language, European methods of farming and trade, and domestic skills, the directors were to handle all the commercial transactions of their charges and were to receive 17 per cent of any gross income...[in addition to a 10 percent state tax... and furthermore]... all Indian males aged between thirteen and 60 were still required to work on
'public works' and to spend half of each year working for the colonists... Observers in Brazil immediately warned that such appalling legislation would lead to disaster," Leslie Bethel, "Colonial Brazil" (Cambridge, 1987; pp., 187-8).

Also includes the author's account of a riot against the French scientists in Cuenca (The folding engraved frontispiece is a scene from the second work, of the “tumult” in the bull fighting arena where the surgeon of the group was murdered) and the first edition tale of the wife of the expedition's cartographer, Jean Godin des Odonais' extraordinary journey from Peru across the Amazon Basin to French Guiana to reunite with him after a 20-year separation. La Condamine was one of those chosen by the Academie des Sciences to participate in an expedition to Peru to measure several degrees of meridian at the equator hoping to settle the Newtonian / Cartesian controversy over the shape of the poles. La Condamine was accompanied by his fellow Academiciens Godin and Bouguer and the naturalist Joseph de Jussieu; after completing their measurements, they returned by separate routes and La Condamine, who chose to return by way of the Amazon, ended up making the first scientific exploration of that river and the first map (included here) of the Amazon in which the latitudes were observed. "Written in a very lively and picturesque style, the Relation is full of interesting and curious observations. One of La Condamine's preoccupations was to verify the existence of women known as Amazons...

A very good copy, possibly rejointed, extremities worn with minor loss at head of spine, faint dampstain to rear pastedown and top edge of a few leaves, lacking rear free endpaper.  $850 Nuno Marques Pereira (1652?-1728?) was born at Cairu, near Bahia, then the capital of Portuguese America, and spent considerable time in the mining areas before traveling to Lisbon. It was considered by some scholars to be
the first Brazilian novel. "A book by a Brazilian about Brazil which was widely read in the eighteenth century and which is of great importance today for the portrait it gives of social life, manners and customs at that time of the common people in Bahia and Minas Geraes" (Borba de Moraes, page 660). Rodrigues "e de grande merito e importancia para as cousas do brasil." It went through five editions by 1765, but the second part was not published until 1939, in Rio de Janeiro. "Pereira's text is an allegorical dialogue in which two characters, The Old Man and The Pilgrim, moralize about the generally sorry state of morals in Brazil. It includes a number of interesting notes on colonial society, but it was not meant to be realistic; Pereira designed it, rather, as the response of the Iberian Counter- Reformation to John Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress," Cambridge History of Latin American Literature, Volume 3, p. 61.

José Xavier Veloso (17421811), born in what is now Minas Gerais, Brazil, was ordained in 1766 in the convent of St. Anthony in Rio de Janeiro, where he studied philosophy and theology, later geometry in San Paulo, and finally natural history. He collected plants, animals, and minerals in the Rio de Janeiro area from 1783 to 1790 at which time he moved to Lisbon where he worked at the Royal Academy of Sciences while preparing Florae Fluminensis, his greatest work, for publication. Using the Linnaeus’ system of sexual classification of plants, he prepared very highly detailed texts and 1700 prints, many of them of new species. But the publication of the work was beset by problems. First sent to Venice, the plates were never completed. Later the French invasion of the Iberian peninsular, sent the Portuguese government, then Veloso and his manuscripts, into exile in Brazil, where he died in 1811. In 1825 an abbreviated version of the text was published, followed by the eleven volumes of the Icones in 1827, of which few copies survive. The complete text was not published until this edition in 1881. 28. [BRAZIL]. VIANNA, ARTHUR. BIBLIOTHECA E ARCHIVO PUBLICO DO PARÁ. "As fortificações da Amazonia.

On the prior day, Carlos María de Alvear, who'd been appointed to replace his uncle Posadas as Supreme Director on January 9, 1815, at the age of 25, resigned under pressure due to a mutiny among his troops, Alvear never had much support from the countryside nor from his troops, his negotations with Artigas failed, and his eventual attempt at seeking British intervention led to his exile. Thus the Cabildo "por la disolucion absoluta de las [autoridades] que la ejercian, ha vendio en declarario asi, reasumiendo provisoriamente por la premura de las circunstancias la Autoridad Soberana del Peublo, con la extension de la facultades que le son propias y con la calidad de nombrar immediatamente un Gobierno Provisorio..."

A reward of 6000 pesos is offered for his capture, dead or alive. Those of his troops and officers who did not surrender were to be declared traitors, judged by a military commission, and shot within 24 hours if found carrying weapons. Artigas was the leader of an independent band of rebels during the conflict with Spain, but his independence caused problems for the United Provinces leading to this call for his capture and execution, neither of which occurred due to his widespread popularity. Later Artigas would lead the war for Uruguayan independence against Argentina and became its first president. Scarce. OCLC locates only one copy at UC Berkeley. Kill All The Dogs 42.

Tribute to the 43 students from the Raúl Isidro Burgos Rural Teachers' College of Ayotzinapa who were disappeared on September 26, 2014, in Guerrero, Mexico as they traveled to Iguala to hold a protest at a conference led by the mayor's wife. Intercepted by the local police on the orders of Iguala's mayor, they were handed over to a local crime syndicate and murdered according to an official investigation. The incident led to mass demonstrations which continue to this day to protest the violence and corruption that has plagued Mexico since the rise of the drug cartels. An exceptionally powerful book with the 43 students honored not only by the striking images cut through so effectively by the paint threads of red, and stark white textual elements against the brutal black of the leaves, but even down to the physical size (the sum of the each two sides being 43 cm) and limitation of the work. Lorena Velazquez is a visual artist of MexicanFrench descent who has worked in printmaking, installation art, craft bookbinding, and the creation of artist's books, always using photography as a primary element.

'Al Publico' with folds, wax seal, and tear opposite; 'Vindicacion' removed from larger volume with one or two stitch holes, some dampstaining at fore margin just affecting a few words.  $950 Pedro Antonio de la Pena (1805-1861) was a native of Popayán from an illustrious family, appointed Military Commander of Ocaña Canton in 1831, and in 1840 was appointed governor of Ocaña and Mompós during the Guerra de los Supremos (1839-1842). Despite his exemplary behavior in support of the government, he was accused of sympathy for the rebel forces. The first document, 'Vindicacion', composed at Mompos [Santa Cruz de Mompox] 31 de Marzo de 1842, published 7 de Abril, and signed in print Enos Patriotas, refers to the government's orders and refutes the claims that he joined the Federal (rebellious) forces. The second document, 'Al Publico', was composed at Mompos 25 de Junio 1842, published 5 de Julio, and signed Sus Amigos. It was mailed from
Ocana, as noted on the reverse; in it Pena is praised highly. In 1846 Pena went on to serve as commander of Battalion 7, and in 1848, with the concurrence of the Senate, was promoted to full Colonel.

A very good copy, folded, with small tear along fold and some tiny chips to the edges.  $375 Replacement of General Valeriano Weyler (1838-1930), known by the Cubans as the Butcher of Cuba. Weyler was named governor of Cuba in 1896 when rebellion was at its height with the charge to suppress the insurgency. Like those before him, Wyler was at first unable to successfully combat the guerilla tactics of the rebels, but soon began a policy of establishing "reconcentration camps,"
in which the local populace had to relocate or be subject to execution. By the end of 1897, Weyler had relocated more than 300,000 and cut the rebels off from their supporters. But "although he was successful moving vast numbers of people, he failed to provide for them adequately. Consequently, these areas became cesspools of hunger, disease, and starvation where thousands died. Weyler's reconcentration policy had another important effect. Although it made Weyler's military objectives easier to accomplish, it had devastating political consequences. Although the Spanish Conservative government supported Weyler's tactics wholeheartedly, the Liberals denounced them vigorously for their toll on the Cuban civilian population," (The Spanish-American War, Hispanic Division, Library of Congress). With a new government in power in Spain, Weyler was replaced by Don Ramón Blanco y Arenas who arrived and assumed power on October 30, 1897, the date of this paper and first day after a new constitution was adopted by the rebels.

Cueto 199.  $4850 Each tinted two-stone lithographic map is surrounded by vignettes of mid-19th century Cuba highlighting its wealth. The Mapa historico pintoresco moderno de la Isla de Cuba (25 x 34 cm.) is bordered by sixteen scenes of Cuban life including a dance, a coffee plantation, tobacco fields, a sugar mill, a cock fight, a naval view of the taking of El Morro by British forces in 1762, the sanctuary of El Cobre, the hurricane of 1846, etc. The map includes an inset Table of Distances. The Plano pintoresco de la Habana con los numeros de las casas (27 x 34 cm.) is highly detailed containing street names, buildings, numbers, location of fortifications, military facilities, institutions, and is bordered by fourteen vignettes of mostly points of architectural interest including the Cathedral, Military hospital, Morro Castle, a view of Havana harbor, and the Fuenta de la Habana en el Paseo de Isabel. The illustrations, perhaps the most iconic 19th century images of Cuba, were originally drawn by Frederic Mialhe. As Emilio Cueto notes in his "Mialhe's Colonial Cuba: the prints that shaped the world's view of Cuba" (Miami 1994), p. 6: "The image which the enlightened public of the nineteenth century had of Cuba was the one conveyed by Mialhe." But the images, though produced by Miahle, were taken by May, in an outrageous case of piracy, and sold in
competition with Mialhe. The maps, however, did not originate with Miahle; they were pirated from a 1848 map by José M. de la Torre, though the distance table was created and added by May. The maps are usually found, if at all, separately and rarely with their original cloth case. 106. [CUBA]. MORENO FRAGINALS, MANUEL; CASTRO DE MORALES, LILIA, ED.

Domingo Cullen (1791 -1839) came to Argentina from the Canary Islands in 1811 and was active in Uruguayan independence, before moving to
Santa Fe in 1823 when this pamphlet was written in response to an article in no. 36 of "El Centinela" of 13 April 1823, entitled "Sucesos notables." which attacked Estanislao López (1786-1838), Governor of Santa Fe, and Juan Antonio Lavalleja (1784-1853), another Uruguayan revolutionary.

[CHRISTIAN VIII (CHRISTIAN FREDERIK), KING OF DENMARK]. Disposiciones tomados el Gobierno de S.M. el Rey de Dinamarca en favor de los Negros esclavos en las Antillas danesas fecha de 18 de febrero de 1844. [Madrid]: 1844. [3 pp.], two leaves. 8 1/2 x 13 inches. First edition. A very good copy.  $1500 Official Spanish copy (with embossed stamp of the “Overseas” [Colonial] Ministry, Madrid) of an 1844 proclamation by the King of Denmark ordering minor reforms for slaves in the Danish West Indies (the “Danish Antilles” which is known now after their 1917 purchase by the United States as the Virgin Islands) which had, for over a century, “imported” 1000 African slaves annually to work the sugar plantations, the slave population eventually outnumbering white residents by more than 10 to 1. The end of slavery in the neighboring British West Indies prompted newly-crowned King Christian VIII, who favored gradual emancipation, as did the Danish population, to issue this very “conservative” proclamation, most of which detailed rules transferring the slaves’ one free day a week from Saturday to Sunday, compensating plantation owners for any “sacrifices” this might entail and allowing them to punish “lazy” slaves by Sunday labor (though any “unfairly punished” might complain to the Governor General). The most controversial provision was left to the final paragraphs, in which the Governor, in collaboration with Lutheran priests, was directed to establish a rudimentary school system by which slave children over the age of 9 would receive Sunday “religious” – and other – education. This modest experiment was vehemently opposed by plantation owners, but Britain's action in setting free the slaves of the British West Indies between 1834 and 1838 made it necessary for the Danish Government to put an end to slavery. Early in 1847 a decree of King Christian VII was promulgated by which all children born in the Danish Antilles after July 28th, 1847, would be born free. And a year later, Danish officials, fearing an open slave rebellion, would entirely abolish slavery on the islands. This copy was undoubtedly sent by Spanish officials in Madrid to the colonial Governor of Cuba – the largest European colony of the Caribbean to preserve slavery for years to come. We could find no ad verbatim copy of this proclamation in any English-language history; the one 1992 scholarly study which mentions its ramifications erroneously dated the document in 1843. A rare and important historical source on one forgotten slave institution of the Americas.

Martínez Paulino: Publicaciones Periódicas Dominicanas desde la Colonia (2nd ed): pp. 38 -9. Very good copies with minor wear to fore edge, a few pin-size holes along inner margins, some browning, bleeding of ink on one manuscript, old stab holes on pamphlet, front wrapper soiled, contemporary owner's signature.  $4000 Seven manuscripts from Spanish Colonial officials and one printed pamphlet by a Dominican rebel all from the very earliest moments of independence. An interesting and rare series of documents revealing both the Spanish and Dominican views on the Dominican Revolution. On 27th February 1844 Santo Domingo declared independence from Haiti, for the second time, the first having lasted only a few months in 1821. The Spanish, who had lost Hispaniola at that earlier time, watched the unfolding events with concern as reflected here in these Spanish colonial documents, mostly official copies which discuss the safety of Haitian troops, French-speaking residents, and Spanish citizens in the new República Dominicana, and summarize and report on the rapidly evolving independence movement as well as the efforts of Haitians of African-descent to thwart the rebellion. Both sides were viewed with some trepidation by Spanish colonial officials in Puerto Rico. The printed document is the first printed periodical in the Dominican Republic: "El Eco Dominicano," (Santo Domingo: Imprenta Nacional, 25 April 1842 corrected in manuscript to 1844). It collects the first news of the Dominican-Haitian war and begins: "It appears that a lot of disinformation is being circulated from the Haitian newspapers regarding the putative rebellion of the Dominican people (against the Spanish Crown). It would also seem that there is a fleet of 43 ships of 30,000 men willing to compel Santo Domingo to sever ties with Spain. Our men, at the orders of General Pedro Santana, have deployed themselves to all parts of the Dominican territory in order to protect it from foreign invaders. ... Let it be known to the Haitian that in spite of the fact that they are larger in number, the Dominicans are more gallant and will defend their territory. Should the hostilities continue, Santo Domingo will be ready to launch a frontal attack on Haiti." No other issues are known to exist. A few of the manuscripts (copies) are located in Cuban archives. We could locate no copies of "El Eco Dominicano" in OCLC, NUC, COPAC, CCILA, or any online catalogues. Copies are however reported by Rodríguez Demorizi at the Archivo del Historiador Nacional Garcia and the Archivo National Habana. The manuscripts include 1. February 28, 1844, A translation of the Capitualtion of the Haitian troops negotiated through the mediation of
the French Consul, dated 28 February to be enacted 29 February 1844. Its ten articles establish that the property of the French troops and families that inhabit the Spanish part of the island will be protected along with their physical integrity during the transition, free passage will be allowed, weapons controlled, debts settled. (A copy with the seal of the General Captaincy of Puerto Rico) 2 pp. 2.

Earthquakes and the prophecies of Rodolfo Falb. Juan Bautista Menten (1838-1900) was a German Jesuit astronomer and geodesist brought to Ecuador by the President, Garcia Moreno, to build and run the Observatorio Astronomico de Quinto. Rudolf Falb was a proponent of the theory that the liquid earth just below the crust is acted upon by the gravitational pull of the moon and sun which draw this fluid into the cracks in the crust. Based on seven factors including the relations between the three bodies (earth, sun, moon) it is possible to predict the occurances of earthquakes. His first success was in predicting the Belluno earthquake of June 29, 1873. In 1874, he predicted the eruption of Etna. He traveled to Peru and Chile in 1877. Scarce.

G. Godoy, F. de B. Correas, J.L. Calle, and J. M. Salinas. (Nos, 28, 41, 50-51, 53, 56 and 58 are wanting in the reproduction). All issues were 4 pages, double col-
umns, and printed by the Imprenta de la Socieded Lancastriana, the third such establishment in Mendoza. The editors were influenced by the French Encyclopedists Voltaire, Diderot, Rousseau, Volney, etc. It was the arch enemy of an existing newspaper published by some Dominicans, El Amigo del Orden, whose editors called those of El Eco de Los Andes "Atheistic libertines!" The Eco's editors retorted that the Amigo's were guilty of fanaticism and superstition. The political articles warmly endorsed the liberal policies of the province's Governor, Juan de Dios Correas, and the liberal and humanitarian government of Bernardino Rivadavia. This was the first and unfortunately the last in the proposed series of reproductions by the Instituto de Investigaciones Históricas at the Universidad Nacional de Cuyo. 139. GÓMEZ, ELISEO RICARDO.

A very good copy, some minor staining at the corners, perhaps where sealed.  $500 In line with the Spanish policy of "Congregation," the Friar Pedro de Angulo attempted to gather the Indians in the area of Vera Paz province into larger, and thus more manageable, settlements, or “reducciones,” as detailed in Captain Martin Alfonso Tovilla's account of 1635. Angulo succeeded in establishing ten villages by 1543 according to Tovilla: Santo Domingo de Cobán, San Pedro Carchá, San Agustín Lanquin, Santa Maria Chagbon [Cahabon], Santa Cruz Munchú, San Cristobal Caccho, Santa María Tactic, San Pablo de Tamaún, and San Miguel Tucurú, though additional settlements were added including La Tinta (Santa Cruz Cahaboncillo), Senahú, and Panzos. To commemorate this deed, a fast cordillera carrier was sent to make a circuit of these same villages, a feat he accomplished in 10 days. In 12 towns, an official has signed, dated, and usually stamped the document. Leader of Guatemalan Aristocrats Dies 144. [GUATEMALA]. [PAVÓN AYCINENA, MANUEL FRANCISCO]. [Funeral notice for] Manuel Francis-
co Pavon. Guatemala: 1855. 1 sheet. 13.5 x19.5 cm. Single sheet bordered in black on three edges. First edition. A very good copy, paper remnants on inner edge, small closed tear on fore edge.  $250 Issued by the Secretaries of the State, announcing the funeral service and procession on April 19, 1855, this invitation is addressed in manuscript to Dr. Mariano Padilla, Professor of Surgery. Manuel Francisco Pavón Aycinena (1798-1855) was a leader of the group of conservative aristocrats who ran the government of Guatemala, including Juan Jose Aycinena, Luis Batres, Mariano Ayciena, Predro Aycinena, and Bernardo Pinol. After the 1826-29 civil war, in which he served as a lieutenant colonel, Pavon went into exile, returning in 1837 and supporting Rafael Carrera as President, and was instrumental in having Carrera named 'president for life' in 1854, just a year before this death notice. In his various positions as secretary of the Assembly, diplomat, editor in chief of the official government Gazette, and variously Minister of Finance, War, Justice, Foreign Relations, Interior, and Ecclesiastical Affairs, he had a major influence in molding Guatemala's governmental structures that last until this day. At his death, the government granted his widow the largest pension ever authorized by them. Not in BN Chile or could we locate copies at any other major libraries. Constitutional Revision Guaranteeing Universal Education 145. [GUATEMALA]. ASAMBLEA NACIONAL CONSTITUYENTE.

Tears to top of title repaired on verso, inked name and date, still a very good+ copy.  $300 An important revision of the 1879 constitution. "In 1887 the Guatemalan Constitution of 1879 was modified. Among the guaranties to citizens contained in the amended Constitution was an article providing that primary instruction should be compulsory. Freedom of religious worship was guaranteed. Citizens might have recourse to the writ of habeas corpus. Entail was prohibited and also the retention of property in dead hands, except by charitable institutions. The President should be elected, by direct popular vote, for six years: he might not be reelected until six years had elapsed. In case of death or disability his place should be taken by substitutes in the order designated by Congress. Members of the cabinet might attend the sessions of the legislature and take part in its deliberations. A council of state made up of cabinet members and other persons selected by the President and the legislature was to act as his advisory body. Legislative authority should be vested in a unicameral legislature called the National Assembly, which was to be composed of members elected by direct popular vote for four
years. The Constitution also provided for a permanent committee of Congress that resembled the committee established by the Costa Rican Constitution of 1871. Judicial authority was vested in a supreme court which should be composed of five members chosen by direct popular vote. This Constitution stipulated that federal judges must belong to the legal profession and might not be ecclesiastics. The basis of local administration should be departments that were to be managed by political chiefs appointed by the President," (Robertson, History of Latin American Nations, p. 456). But it also restored a section allowing for extraordinary presidential emergency powers, when "the interest or necessity of the Republic demand," which had been removed during the revision of 1885. 146.

José Rafael Carrera Turcios (1814-1865) was the president of Guatemala in two distinct periods: 1844 to 1848, when his policies attempted to balance liberal aspirations against the conservative elite and from 1851 to 1865, during which period he was president for life, when he closely allied himself with the conservative establishment, the church hierarchy, and the rich landowners. As the most influential politician in Guatemala, with virtually monarchal powers, Carrera also intervened in the development of his neighboring states to aid the conservative rule in El Salvador and Honduras.

Pierre Marie Arthur Morelet (1809-1892) was a French naturalist and expert on molluscs. In 1846 and 1847 he undertook a self financed expedition to Central America but with input from the Academie de Sciences in Paris where he published its results shortly after his return. It was only a decade later in 1857 that he could be convinced to publish a narrative that would appeal to a wider audience (it was translated in 1871 as 'Travels in Central America', absent the part on Cuba). Morelet "belongs to that group of writers whose approach to nature and its beings is still guided by a humanistically-inspired reverence for creation...." (Surveying the American Tropics: A Literary Geography). Morelet wrote in a entertaining style filled with "anecdotes of picaresque adventures whose literary effect is heightened by the frequent inclusion of dialogues with his uneducated but witty companions- his French servant and native guides [but] his text also offers serious and extremely well-written descriptions of the natural world he encounters, which betray his scholarly expertise."

Large Scale Map of Haiti
With one page of advertisements. Originally published as "Tagebuch einer reise durch Peru" (Dresden, 1798). Anton Zacharias Helms (1751-1803) was a mining expert who joined the expedition to the Viceroyalty of the Rio de la Plata led by Thaddeus von Nordenflicht at the request of the King of Spain to assist in improving the system for processing silver from the mining operations in Potosi. This is the best record of the expedition, and Helms writes not only about mining operations, but in the second section covers extensively the governments, geology, topography, peoples, history, and commerce of the region. An abridged version without the map and running 92 pages, was published the following year (see next item). Provenance: Coleccion Monclau (bookplate).

Lopez announces that his representatives have been elected and calls for peace: "Let bloodshed and our disputes stop and let us have a stable reconciliation so that we can leave behind this state of anarchy." López (1786-1839), Caudillo of Santa Fe from 1818 to 1838, was a supporter of Rosas and favored federalism. Martin Rodríguez was a major political leader. After Dorrego's defeat in 1820, he became Governor of Buenos Aires. and arranged the Bernegas Treaty (1820) that established a truce between the Mesopotamian Provinces and Buenos Aires.

Pablo de Mendibil's synopsis of Carlos Maria Bustamante's 'Cuadro Historic de la Revolucion de Mexico' (1823), was an attempt to popularize the Mexican cause among Europeans since Bustamante's original work was exceeding scarce. Mendibil (1788-1832), an exile from Spain living in London, one of the 'afrancesados' who had emigrated to France in 1814, prepared this work at the urging of Mexican Independistas, including the publisher Rodolfo Ackermann, for whom he had previously written textbooks. Both the original by Bustamente and the shorter work by Mendibil, are hard to find and are rarely at auction.

"Extremely rare," Sabin. Fifteen authors (listed at the conclusion of the introduction) provide the Mexican view of the war with battle plans. Originally published in installments in late 1848 to early 1849, then the remaining issues were bound, which may explain the lower plate or map counts in most other copies currently offered as well as those listed by Eberstadt, Sabin, Palau, Howes. Severely criticizes the loss of nearly 55% of Mexican territory by General Santa Anna who had the work suppressed, copies in private hands burned, and the authors imprisoned. "They [the authors] wanted to understand why Mexico had lost the war and the nation's territory. They wanted to present this study in the form of "Apuntes" so that the information could serve as an example of how to preserve the nation in the future. That is the great achievement of this work. That the writers hoped it would teach other generations about the critical moments Mexico had experienced, about what had led to them, and how we could correct our course in order to preserve what remained of the territory and the nation. Later they became politicians and worked together with the generation led by Benito Juárez. Their experiences during the U.S.-Mexican war helped them when they had to face the French invasion in the 1860s. Eventually they did carry out the work of consolidating Mexico," (from "'Apuntes' and the Lessons of History:" A Conversation with Jesús Velasco-Márquez, Instituto Tecnológico Autónomo de México). An English translation, 'The Other Side, or, Notes for the history of the war between Mexico and the United States', was published in New York and London, 1850.

A very good copy, boards lightly scuffed, some faded ink spots on title page, small bookplate on front pastedown.  $1000 Colonization was an important element of Mexican strategy even more so after the loss of Texas and war with the United States. "[T]hese regulations, which were promulgated December 4, 1846, nominally prevailed in California at the time, and the price of lands in Upper and Lower California [Baja and Alta California] is specifically given" Streeter, V. IV p. 1807. José María Lafragua (1813-1881) was put in charge of the newly reorganized Department of Colonization in late November 1846 and issued these regulations in early December (while his counterpart, Ambassador José María Luis Mora was in London trying to encourage European immigration). Prices were set at a minimum of 4 reales an acre, except for those of Baja California, where they would have a price of 2 reales. The land will be put up at auction at the price and on the conditions established by the decree. The purchaser was bound to settle the land with at least two families, of five individuals each, per square mile, within the space of two years. The new foreign settlers were to be considered as citizens of the republic from their arrival
in the colony. Most important was paragraph 382, which attempted to guard against further incursion by the United States or Texas. "Who may not be Colonists.—1. That none of the colonists who may be introduced therein shall be a subject or native of or come from a nation whose territory lies contiguous to the lands which are to be granted, nor of a power with which the republic may be at war, save in the cases in which the government may make exceptions for special reasons and motives." This was followed by a prohibition of slavery. As Streeter noted "[T]hese regulations, which were promulgated December 4, 1846, nominally prevailed in California at the time." The issue of colonization would become even more important after the defeat suffered by the Mexican army by the U.S. in 1847.

Important Scientific & Cultural Account of South America
John Miers (1789–1879) was a British botanist and engineer, who traveled to South America to begin a copper mining venture in Chile, a trip that he abandoned when his wife fell ill, and instead focused on collecting plants. "Travels in Chile and La Plata, which appeared ...[in 1826] in two volumes, edited and carried through the press by his father-in- law, Francis Place, was to bring him a lasting reputation as the foremost authority on the geography and way of life of that region," (ODNB, 18688). Volume One is primarily a travel account and "a very good one" (Griffin), while the second volume is an organized and detailed description of Chile's geography, politics, history, society, mining, and natural history. 202.

Very good copies with restored wrappers; Vol. I has nick to first few leaves, last few leaves unopened (uncut); Vol. II has publisher's error with earlier extra title (dated 1858) bound upside-down before half-title and also inserted correctly at rear; binding near fine.  $650 Historia de Belgrano was the expansion of an article that originally appeared in Galeria, and it subsequetly went through four editions, the last in 1887, each one much augmented. "Mitre gathered and studied the books of America history, he submitted them to critical testing, he classified them according to what precipiated from them, and tried to contrast the results of his personal reseach among unpublished sources with what was already published," (Romulo D. Carbia, Historia critica de la historiografia agentina, p. 166-7). "Despite the impressive bibliographical apparatus supporting his work, however, Mitre's Historia de Belgrano provoked an enduring polemic regarding his basic premise: that a history of Belgrano, a great man, and the enlightened minority in Buenos Aires could somehow be a history of Argentine independence," (Nicolas Shumway, The Invention of Argentina, p. 208). Sabin calls it "a masterly work." 203. MITRE, BARTOLOMÉ. LAFONE QUEVEDO, SAMUEL A. Lenguas Americanas. Estudio Bibliográfico- Lingüístico de las obras del P.

Doolittle defends Hiram Paulding (1797-1878) who was relieved of command by James Buchanan for arresting William Walker as he tried once again to regain military control of Nicaragua. Walker had led an expedition to unite the Central American nations under his command, had become president of Nicaragua, and was then toppled in a revolution. There was much discussion of the legality of Walker's arrest since he was a U.S. citizen in a neutral foreign country. 216. NUÑEZ ORTEGA, A. [ANGEL].

Alcide d'Orbigny (1802-1857) was a prominent French naturalist who made major contributions in zoology, paleontology, geology, archaeology, and anthropology. He traveled, on a mission for the Paris Museum, in South America between 1826 and 1833 visiting Brazil, Argentina, Paraguay, Chile, Bolivia and Peru and returning with an enormous collection of more than 10,000 natural history specimens. The present work was extracted from Orbigny's three volume "Voyage dans l'Amerique Meridional," (Strasbourg and Paris, 1835-45) and focuses on his travels in the former Jesuit reducciones of Chiquitos and Moxos in eastern Bolivia. "This is without question the classic travel account and of prime utility in understanding the condition of the nation in its first turbulent years of independence," Griffin p. 522).

"The latest illustration of this larcenous diabolism is furnished by the Chileans in their account of the antecedents, origin, and progress of the ruthless war now waged by them, with the assistance of a confederacy of powerful and unscrupulous English merchants against the States of Bolivia and Peru. To anyone familiar with the real facts of this internecine struggle, the effrontery of Balmaceda in appending his name to the tissue of fabrications, now become notorious under the name of the Chilean Circular to Foreign Governments, seems sublime." 225.

July 6, 1947 (it was included later the same year as one of three pieces in an item with a similar title, as below). It claimed for Argentina a "Third Position" of positive neutrality in the cold war between the Western powers and Russia. Peron was soon to organize the Peronist Party and set forth his program of "Justicialismo" stressing that true justice was more important than the old legal system which favored large capitalist interests, both domestic and foreign, particularly British and American. In this Declaration he vouches that the material and spiritual forces of Argentina must express to the world, that Argentina seeks to serve humanity, that above all, international peace is his major objective. Argentina must cooperate with other nations, labor must be protected, the economy must be regulated by the state to benefit all, exploitation must be eradicated in order to end social injustice. Argentina must light the flame for all the Americas and must always be free and independent. 229. [PERÓN, JUAN]. MINISTERIO DE RELACIONES EXTERIORES Y CULTO.

During the first period of Perón's presidency (1946-1949), a major policy was to improve the international image of Argentina abroad. Perón claimed a "Third Position" of positive neutrality in the cold war which had developed between the western powers and Russia. The present volume contains three separate titles toward the goals of economic cooperation and world peace. Part I is the "Declaration" of Perón, placing the position of Argentina and its goals before the world of nations. Part II is a "Nota" addressed by the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Worship, Dr. Juan Atilio Bramuglia, to the nations stating the position of Argentina to achieve both internal and international peace. Part III is a proposal made by the Argentine Nation to those of America for international peace. This "Proyecto" was published here in Spanish, Portuguese, English, French, Italian and Russian. 230.

"Ranney belongs to a tradition of landscape photographers that includes Frederick Sommer, Paul Caponigro, Aaron Siskind, Wynn Bullock, and Minor White. What Ranney shares with this distinguished if loose-knit bunch is the resolve to make photographs whose meaning transcends what you see in the picture. Imagery is important for him, but only insofar as it conveys deeper, frequently spiritual themes and ideas. Mr. Ranney's photographs of Machu Picchu exemplify his efforts to make the medium speak of things beyond what you and I can see. Deceptively simple in appearance, pictures such as ''Machu Picchu (Intihuatana),'' 1971, and ''Machu Picchu (Lower Machu Picchu and the Urubamba Valley),'' 1975, strive to convey the intimate connections between Inca monuments and the awesome setting with its shapely mountain peaks.

After having taught himself botany, geology, hydrology, and topography, and suggesting a scientific survey of British Guiana, Schomburgk was commissioned to complete it by the Royal Geographical Society. In three extensive trips between 1835 and 1839, Schomburgk surveyed the coasts, and the major rivers including the Essequibo, Corentyne, Rio Branco, Berbice, and Rupununi. His excellent maps formed the basis for the provisional boundary between British Guiana and Venezuela, known as the "Schomburgk Line", and the boundary with the Dutch colony of Surinam. He returned to Guiana with his brother, Richard, a botanist, in 1840, and they undertook the exploration of both the interior and the northwestern coastal region between Essequibo and Orinoco "With his exact latitudinal and longitudinal measurements and a dense network of barometric and temperature stations, Schomburgk established the foundations of the geological knowledge of the country, which was valid long after his death," (Heinz

Mostly consists of comments on certain writings of Isidro Carbajal y Lancaster, Bishop of Cuenca, who had accused the monarchy of setting the country "hopelessly adrift" and stripping the church of its properties, scorning its ministers, and running a disastrous colonial policy leading to deterioration of the Spanish possessions (there had been rioting in Quito, Ecuador, in 1766). The Prontuario variously ascribed these comments to the fiscales of the Consejo Real, Pedro Campomanes and José Moñino, as well as other documents in the case. The bishop was eventually forced "to recant formally and abjectly before a session of the Consejo de Castilla held in Aranda's residence," (Stanley J. Stein, "Apogee of Empire: Spain and New Spain in the Age of Charles III, 1759–1789," Baltimore: John Hopkins, 2003).

Strain (1821-1857), was a explorer and naval officer, who as a midshipman served in the West Indies and off the Brazilian coast. In 1843 he organized an expedition to the interior of Brazil with funding from the Academy of Nat-
ural Sciences in Philadelphia, was later assigned to patrol the waters off the west coast of Mexico during the Mexican War, and, still seeking further explorations, finally received permission to go ashore in Valparaiso where he proceeded across the continent to Buenos Aires, recording in this work his observations of the nearly year-long journey. He later served on the Mexican Boundary Commission and led a harrowing exploration of the Isthmus of Darien in search of a canal route. (See DAB, XVIII, p.122).

Mag. en los reynos del Perù" (both published at Madrid in 1748); and of Garcilaso de la Vega's "Comentarios reales de los Incas." This copy with the Paris imprint, but Sabin argues it is just a change to the title page of the Arkste's & Merkus edition (Amsterdam et Leipzig) the same year. In 1735 the French Academy of Science requested permission to send an expedition to the equatorial regions of Spanish controlled South America in order for Charles de la Condamine and other French scientists to measure several degrees of meridian at the equator. By comparing their results with those obtained by a similar mission to Lapland, the Academie hoped to settle the controversy between the Newtonians and the Cartesians over whether the earth was flattened or elongated at the poles. Ulloa and Juan y Santacilia, Spain's best scientific officers, were sent along. Despite great difficulties, the expedition's geodetic measurements proved the validity of Newton's hypothesis. Antonio de Ulloa y de la Torre-Girault (1716 -1795) was later the first Spanish governor of Louisiana though he was deposed in 1768 after two years, during a creole revolt and also served as governor of Huancavelica in Peru. 292.
