The Mexican War of Independence established a constitutional monarchy based on the Spanish Constitution of 1812. Discontent with the monarch, Agustin I, led to a successful revolution led by General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna, who overthrew Augustin I on March 19, 1823. Santa Anna established a provisional government on November 5, 1823. It established a Federal Republican Government on February 3, 1824, which created a constitution enacted on October 4 of 1824. A landmark in the history of Mexico, it established a representative federal republic, the United Mexican States. It was replaced by the Federal Constitution of the United Mexican States of 1857. The Coleccion is a valuable record of the provisional government and its central role in the establishment of modern Mexico. Bibliographicaly distinct, it is often bound with another volume that covered the transitional period, February 24, 1822 to October 30, 1823. Some records refer to these books as a two-volume set. OCLC locates 8 copies in North American law libraries (Duke, Harvard, LA County, Library of Congress, Northwestern, Southern Methodist University, UT-Austin, Yale). Not in Clagett & Valderrama.
