Santiago: Imprenta del Ferrocarril, 1868. First edition (?). Green printed paper wrappers. A very good unopened (uncut) and untrimmed wide-margined copy, untrimmed edges ragged, chips and tears to original wrappers, bookseller's sticker on half-title.. 90 pp. dbl. col. An important document concerning the independence of the judiciary in Chile and a reply to the accusations made by the Cámara de diputados against the Supreme Court, whose President was Manuel Montt. Montt, who had served as President of Chile, was an authoritarian leader who represented the conservative oligarchy. The impeachment against the Supreme Court alleged that the Conservatives and the Church had promoted the civil war in 1859 during Montt's administration. While this document opposing the impeachment is unsigned, it is most likely the work of Antonio Varas who had been Montt's Minister of the Interior and whose commentary,"Discourses del seńor Varas en las sessions del 27 y 28 de Octobre de la Cámara de diputados," on pages 67-90, follows the main document. This is an apparently unrecorded issue. OCLC lists three copies of a different issue: Univ. Texas, Univ. Conn., and BN Chile, both paginated 79, 20; Staatsbibliothek Berlin has only "La acusasion," 79 pp. Medina, Diccionario de anónimos y seudónimos hispanoamericanos, v. 1, p. 4.
