Madrid: En la Imprenta Real, 1783. ,94pp. in Spanish and French, plus a map. Small quarto. Original plain wrappers. Spine bit chipped. A crisp, near fine copy. In a half morocco and cloth case. This is the official Spanish printing of the treaty in which England and Spain make peace in the American Revolution. England gives the Floridas back to Spain, and Spain returns the Bahamas to England. The navigation of the Belize and Hondo rivers is made common to both nations. They also settle all hostilities concerning the Revolution, a necessary component of the final Peace of 1783. England's returning Florida to Spain provided the U.S. with a headache not resolved until the U.S. purchased Florida from Spain in 1819. The engraved map depicts the Hondo and Belize rivers.
