1796. México. Large broadside, (596 x 787 mm). Printed in four columns. Unbound. Separated along vertical fold, now professionally restored, generally clean and crisps.- Important colonial broadside decree announcing the regulations concerning the production of Rhum , or aguardiente de cana, over forty-five articles relating to the production, ingredients, sale and exporting of Rhum [aguardiente] in Mexico. It sets forth locations where it is permissible to produce it, and fundamentally establishes that the Mexican aguardiente must be distinguishable from the Castilian one in two ways: first, the color (white) and the form of their containers "de figura chata" called castanas, rather than the rounded barrels used in Castilla (Spain). The document is signed and executed at the bottom by several officials. Manuscript authorization at bottom dated at Chihuahua, Dec. 26, 1796, and docketed on verso with arms of New Spain. Rare institutionally, we locate copies at Yale, JCB, University of San Diego and Texas A&M.
