The political pendulum swung to the liberals in 1863 and a new constitution was promulgated at Rionegro which was to last until 1886. It renamed the nation the United States of Colombia, gave to the states all powers not reserved to the central government, contained fully defined individual liberties and guarantees, and guaranteed Colombians full religious freedom.
"Edicion oficial revisada por una comision de la Camara de Representantes, compuesta de un miembro por cada estado."
Uncommon: we locate fewer than half a dozen copies in U.S. libraries. Late 19th- or early 20th-century quarter cloth with marbled paper sides. Ownership mark on rear free endpaper. A very good copy. (Inventory #: 18311)
