CONVENTION BETWEEN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA AND THE MEXICAN REPUBLIC, CONCLUDED JANUARY 30, 1843
by [United States-Mexico Treaty]
[Washington], 1843. 5pp. Printed in double-column format in parallel English and Spanish. Folio. Gathered signatures, string-tied. Some wear on old folds and chips at foredge. A few pencil margin notes. Withal, still very good. The official, folio, printing of this treaty. Such printings were done in small numbers. This treaty called for arbitration in the outstanding Mexican and U.S. claims. According to Bancroft, "The treaty of arbitration was a thorn in the flesh of many who had cast an evil eye on Mexico, as it did away with all pretexts for complaint against the latter Republic, and postponed indefinitely the acquisition of Texas." Not for long, as it turned out. This was the sixth, and last, Mexican treaty with the U.S. before war came after the annexation of Texas. OCLC locates only a single copy, at The New York Public Library. Not in Streeter TEXAS. Very rare. MALLOY, p.1103. OCLC 41010415. (Inventory #: WRCAM34320)
