Mexico: Imprenta de Doña Herculana del Villar y socios, 1822. - 32pp. Stitched, in modern stiff paper wrappers. Manuscript title on front wrapper. Light worming, slightly affecting text. Titlepage lightly foxed, otherwise internally clean. About very good. Untrimmed. A rare and fascinating Mexican imprint, published by a female printer during the interval between the country's Declaration of Independence in September 1821 and the imposition of the short-lived Mexican Empire under Agustín de Iturbide in May 1822. The pamphlet announces the opposition of Spain to Mexican independence, and prints the official statement of the commission refusing to consider the matter as well as extracts from the Spain's parliamentary discussions surrounding it. In an animated introductory response, an anonymous Mexican author writes, "La España no lleva en paciencia la emancipación de la América Septentrional, de esa hija cuya rica dote estaba à su manejo, y por eso la demoraba contracíendo sus deseos. Resiente lo irreparable de la perdida, y lamenta desesperada su impotencia fisica para sojurzgarla de nuevo, aumentado sus prisiones con cadenas mas fuertes. En medio de su rabioso transporte la sagacidad le ofrece recursos que desde luego adopta, considerándoles capaces de saciar las miras de su ambicion y de su venganza." Extremely scarce, with only two copies located in OCLC, at the New York Public Library and the National Library of Mexico.
