Santander’s Reglamento for the Estado Mayor Jeneral as Vice President of the great Colombia. 1825. Bogota, November 8. In 4to (260 mm x 195 mm). 6 ff. Unbound. Uneven edges, paper toned, tears not affecting. Extremely rare, we have been unable to locate another copy of this imprint, given by Francisco Paula de Santander (1792 – 1840) as Vice President of what is not known as the Great Colombia –a position that would accompany him from 1819 to 1827, thus most of its duration- and undersigned by Carlos Soublette (1789 – 1870), a Venezuelan procer, who had been recently appointed Minister of War and Marine (March, 1825) of Colombia. The Reglamento gives outlines for the conformation of the military (members of staff, quantity, succession, distribution of salaries, etc.) and details all aspects of rule and command for infantry and cavalry, again with specifications of their conformations (number of officers, rations for horses according to the rank of the officer, etc.). Amongst the subjects mentioned, is who is in charged of requesting and making maps, designing fortresses and parks, amongst others. [Attributes: First Edition]
