Caraqueños: @[begins:] Llegó la época feliz del desengaño. El fatal error, origen de vuestras desgracias, debe desaparecer ante la verdad .
[Cádiz], Imprenta Real, [1812]. - Caption title. (2 ll.). Folio, unbound. Horizontal and vertical foldlines, small stain, small inscription in upper outer corner of first leaf recto. In fine condition. ---- FIRST and ONLY EDITION of this exhortation to the citizens of Caracas, dated 1 February 1812. The author attempts to lure discontented Venezuelans back to the arms of Spain, complimenting them on their bravery during the Peninsular War and even proposing a face-saving excuse for their rebellion: that they were deceived by agents of Napoleon.Rodriguez de Ribas, a native of Caracas, was one of two Venezuelan representatives to the Cortes which met in Cádiz and drafted the landmark Spanish Constitution promulgated 18 March 1812. He was also one of five regents chosen to govern Spain until the return of Fernando VII.When Rodriguez de Ribas penned his address, the liberal government formed following Venezuelan independence, on 5 July 1811, was in grave danger of collapse. Copies of this address would have arrived in Caracas almost precisely at the time of the great earthquake of 26 March 1812, which many interpreted as a sign of divine disfavor against liberalism. Beset by an invading royalist force, slave revolts, and low morale, Venezuela again fell under Spanish control.---- Not in Palau.
