Caracas: Gallagher y Lamb, April 27, 1810.. [1]p. Folio. Worming in foremargin, touching two letters, repaired. Small hole where paper was thin at center of leaf, with loss of a bit of a rule but no text. Pencilling in margins. A very good copy. Newspaper printing did not begin in Venezuela until October 1808, when the press of Gallagher and Lamb arrived and printed, as its first product, the first issue of Andrés Bello's GAZETA DE CARACAS. The news that Andrés Bello gives to eager readers in this supplement concerns the total occupation of Madrid by Napoleon's forces, the fleeing to Gibraltar of 5000 Spanish soldiers, and other distresses that the Spanish army was suffering. Rare: Charno locates copies of the supplement only at the Newberry and University of Texas libraries. CHARNO, LATIN AMERICAN NEWSPAPERS IN UNITED STATES LIBRARIES, pp.590-92.
