TRATADO DE PAZ, AMISTAD, LIMITES Y ARREGLO DEFINITIVO ENTRE LA REPUBLICA MEXICANA Y LOS ESTADOS-UNIDOS DE AMERICA, FIRMADO EN GUADALUPE HIDALGO EL 2 DE FEBRERO DE 1848...
Queretaro: Imprenta de J.M. Lara, 1848. [bound with:] ESPOSICION DIRIGIDA AL SUPREMO GOBIERNO POR LOS COMISIONADOS QUE FIRMARON EL TRATADO DE PAZ CON LOS ESTADOS-UNIDOS. Queretaro: Imprenta de Jose M. Lara, 1848. 27pp. Original pink printed wrappers. Bookplate on inside of front wrapper. Minor dampstaining to some leaves at top of gutter. Very good plus. Untrimmed. In a red half morocco and cloth slipcase, spine gilt. The first Mexican printing of the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo: a landmark American treaty and the document that gave the United States the Southwest and California. This printing was issued in the wake of the treaty signing, which took place in the town of Guadalupe Hidalgo, where the Mexican government had retreated in the face of advancing American troops. It is bound here, as is usual and proper, with the ESPOSICION..., in which the Mexican signatories to the treaty defend their cession of New Mexico and California to the United States. The two items are interesting from a printing standpoint, as the two titles have separate titlepages and are separately paginated, yet the signature markings on the gatherings are continuous, and the second titlepage is the third leaf in signature 4. The Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, which ended the war between the United States and Mexico, resulted in the formal cession of the entire Southwest and California to the United States. Agreements were reached for the withdrawal of American troops from Mexico, the payment of Mexican claims, and the formal cession of territory (the U.S. had already occupied all of the land). The theoretical boundaries were set out and arrangements for boundary commissioners were made. By this treaty the U.S. obtained an addition of land equalled in size only by the Louisiana and Alaska purchases. "A document of resounding consequence" - Eberstadt. A fundamental piece of Western Americana, here in its earliest Mexican printing, and scarce on the market. STREETER SALE 281. PALAU 339388. GARRETT, pp.90-91. COWAN, p.252. HOWES M565, "b."
