Estado general que de orden del Excmo. Cabildo de esta capital forma su contaduria para demostrar los caudales que por lo correspondiente al nuevo impuesto de ciudad .
Buenos Aires, En la Real Imprenta de Ninos Expositos, 12 Feb 1810. - Folio (31.1 x 43 cm.), unbound. Caption title. Vertical fold at center. In very good to fine condition. (1 l.), printed on recto only. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION. A general statement of the expenses and income of the city of Buenos Aires from 12 August 1806, the day of the British surrender, to 31 December 1809; it is dated 10 February 1810, with a decreto authorizing publication dated two days later. Most of the expenses were for military defense; the income was from two sources, a new tax and donations from the other provinces of the Viceroyalty. The economic plight of Buenos Aires furnished one of the most important impulses for the independence movement. The liberal creoles, led by Mariano Moreno, pressed for free trade with Britian, while the old Spanish merchants demanded taxes in accordance with the Junta of Seville. Caught between these two forces, the new Viceroy, Baltasar Cisneros, opened trade in November 1809 - only to reverse his decision the following month. This Estado represents a temporary victory for the old Spanish faction, but Mariano's widely read liberal views and the fall of the Seville Junta determined the economic emancipation of Buenos Aires before its political emancipation began. *** Medina 751. Furlong 1791: notes that, according to the records of the press, the Estado was printed 26 February in accordance with the Viceroy's order of 23 February. This copy is possibly a variant, since both Furlong and Medina record the title with "la contaduria" rather than "su contaduria." Not located in CCPBE. Not located in Rebiun. Not located in Copac.
