Mexico. Inquisition.
Broadside, begins: Sabed: que ha llegado ? nuestras manos un proclama del rebelde Cura de Dolores que se titula: 'Manifiesto, que el Se?or Don Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla::::,, [sic] haze al Pueblo."
Mexico: no publisher/printer, 26 January 1811. Folio (43.4 cm; 17.125"). [1] p. Approximately two months prior to Father Hidalgo's capture by the Royal Forces, the Holy Office issued this decree condemning a publication of the Father of Mexican Independence as seditious, Lutheran, and anti-Catholic. Other writings circulating in manuscript are also condemned: One beginning, "Hemos llegado a la epoca" and ending, "De una Patriota de Lagos" and another beginning, "Es posible. Americanos!" and ending, "será gratificado con quinientos pesos." Copies of each were burned by the public executioner and all citizens are warned of the penalties — excommunication and fines — for owning or reading these writings, or failing to denounce those who do. Printed on two sheets precisely glued together to form a seamless whole, in double-column format and with the woodcut seal of the Inquisition in the lower right corner of the lower edge. Garritz located only the copy in the Biblioteca Nacional and WorldCat locates only seven U.S. institutions holding copies. Garritz, Impresos novohispanos, 1137. Not in Palau; Medina, Mexico; Ziga & Espinosa, Adiciones a la imprenta en Mexico; González de Cossío, 510, or González de Cossío, Cien. Old folds; a few small wormholes touching or costing a very few letters and one larger hole costing five letters, but not impeding reading sense. Slight discoloration along the area where the two sheets are pasted together and at points on vertical fold.
