1852. Mexico Halts the Sale of a Transportation Route Between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans [Mexico]. [Ramirez, Jose Fernando]. Statement of the Rights and Just Reasons, On the Part of the United Mexican States for Not Recognizing Either the Subsistence of the Privilege Granted to D. Jose Garay, For the Opening of a Line of Communication Between the Atlantic and Pacific Seas, Through the Isthmus of Tehuantepec, or the Legality of the Cession Which he Made of Said Privilege to Citizens of the United States of North America. Mexico City: Printed by O'Sullivan and Nolan, 1852. 40 pp. Octavo (9" x 6"). Stab-stitched pamphlet in printed wrappers. Light soiling and edgewear, spine abraded, front wrapper partially detached but secure. Light toning to text, internally clean. $350. * Only edition, one of two issues, the other printed in New York. This pamphlet addresses a set of thorny issues in international law arising from foreign investment. Garay was authorized by the Mexican government to organize a company to construct a railroad or canal route across the Tehuantepec Isthmus. Needing expertise and capital, he collaborated with a group of American investors, who eventually tried to purchase Garay's share of his company. Mexico, smarting from the consequences of the Mexican-American War and eager to prevent American domination of the Tehuantepec project, declared the sale invalid. OCLC locates 2 copies in North American law libraries (Harvard, University of Virginia). (Inventory #: 65172)
