[COLLECTION OF PROCLAMATIONS AND DOCUMENTS FROM NUEVO LEÓN IN THE MID-19th CENTURY]
by [Mexico]: [Nuevo León]
[Mexico, 1870. 136 documents of various lengths. Seventy-eight proclamations and circulars, approximately legal sized; three larger broadside proclamations; thirty- one manuscript orders and letters; engravings, forms, and periodicals. Some edge wear and minor soiling throughout. Very good. In an archival box. An archive of printed and manuscript documents relating to political and military activities in the Mexican state of Nuevo León in the middle of the 19th century. During this period the state strongly considered separation from Mexico beginning in the 1850s, threatening secession and later investigating possible negotiations with the Confederacy, but it also played a role in the resistance to the rule of the French and Maximilian in the 1860s. These issues, as well as more practical matters of governance, are addressed principally through printed proclamations as well as manuscript orders and correspondence addressed to the towns of Hualahuises and Linares, located to the south of Monterrey, and to their government officials. The collection also includes two engravings of Maximilian and ephemeral items such as two short periodicals and blank Mexican government forms. A full inventory of all items is available on request.
