by [Guatemala]: [Spain - Laws, statutes]
[Guatemala, 1821. pp. Small folio. Stitched. Ink stains and dust soiling on final leaf verso. Light foxing and dampstaining. Very good. A Guatemalan imprint of several decrees passed by the Spanish legislative assembly, the Còrtes, in 1820. The assembly existed for three years, from 1820 to 1822, during the so-called Trienio Liberal, when a military coup forced Ferdinand VII to institute a more liberal form of government. Ferdinand eventually defeated those forces with the aid of the French, and re-established an absolute monarchy. The decrees included here orders penions to be granted to those families who suffered for their adherence to the Constitution, first promulgated in 1812, and offers amnesty to all those who were forced to emigrate from Spain because of their political views, among other actions. The longest decree addresses enrollments in the Spanish navy, and the provision of men for Spanish warships. The final leaf bears the printed signature of Gavino Gaínza, who at this point was the head of the Spanish provincial and military government, but who later in 1821 would sign the Act of Independence of Central America and declare Guatemala an independent country. Rare, not in Medina or OCLC. (Inventory #: WRCAM51825)
