Éditeur : A.H. Baily & Co., London
Date d'édition : 1844
Edition : First edition.
Large quarto, pp [vi], 81, including large double fold-out table. The contents are admirably summarized in the sub-title, which continues: "and Prospects of their improvements; with Calculations of the Public Debt, Foreign and Domestic, averages of Estimates, revenue, and Expenditure; to which are added, tables illustrative of its commercial, manufacturing, and prohibitive policy, and remarks on colonization; the whole intended for the information of merchants, emigrants, and the holders of Mexican Bonds." Rather uncommon title: OCLC notes only two copies; Sabin does not list it, though he does a subsequent book of the author on Hawaiian shipping and trade; Palau has it with notice of a Mexican translation the following year, i.e. 1845. Bears the signature in pencil, on the title page, of [Joaquin] del Castillo y Lanzas, a prominent Mexican from the time of Iturbide through the Mexican American war, who undertook diplomatic missions for his country, edited newspapers, and wrote poetry (the first translator of Byron in Mexico). Full Spanish calf binding, raised bands, dentelles: very nice copy. N° de réf. du libraire 6262
