[Text begins:] LA SUPREMA JUNTA GUBERNATIVA DE ESTA CAPITAL, HA RECIBIDO CON LA MAYOR SATISFACCION EL VOTO SINCERO Y GENEROSO DE MUCHOS INDIVIDUOS ESPAÑOLES ENROPEOS [sic] DE COMERCIO DE ESTA CIUDAD
Caracas: Gallagher y Lamb, April 20, 1810.. Broadside, 12 1/4 inches tall. Slight worming in foremargin, touching but not costing three letters; repaired. A very good copy. On the day after the coup d'état that deposed the Captain General, the leaders of the governing junta in Caracas announce that many of the city's Spanish and European merchants have given their support to the new government. Whether they did so willingly or because of pressure is not known, but this is clearly a statement that is directed at both the hold-out merchants and at those hotheads who might seek to extract compliance extra- governmentally. Llamosas and Tovar Ponte were among the leading figures of the early Independence movement in Venezuela. The junta paid lip service to continued loyalty to the Spanish monarch imprisoned by the French; both served as president of Junta of Defense of the Rule of Fernando VII (later, The Revolutionary Junta), Llamosas from April 19 to August 1810, and Tovar August 1810 to March 2, 1811. Additionally, Tovar Ponte, the favorite son of an elite family, was a member of the 1811 Congress and a signer of the Venezuelan Act of Independence on July 5 of that year. This proclamation was printed by Venezuela's first press, that of Gallagher and Lamb, which only arrived in Caracas in October 1808. It is the fourteenth item in Pedro Grases' chronological list of things printed in Venezuela. Evidently the third known copy: Grases located only the copies in the Public Record Office in London and the Archivo de Indias in Seville. Searches of NUC and OCLC fail to find any copy at all. Further, no copies were found when searching the OPACs of the national libraries of Venezuela, Colombia, Spain, France, and England. A highly important document of the Venezuelan Revolution, issued the day of the overthrow of the old government. GRASES, HISTORIA DE LA IMPRENTA EN VENEZUELA 14.
