[Arizpe, Sonora: Imprenta del Gobierno del Estado, ]. 1838 - Broadsheet, 8 1/2 x 12 inches. Minute wear to edges. Near fine. An important Mexican political broadsheet and an early Sonora imprint. Of particular note is the juxtaposition of Santa Anna's return from Washington following his capture by Sam Houston with the events of Tacubaya that began the so-called "Pastry War." Tacubaya, a small section of Mexico City, was home to a French pastry chef who complained to French authorities that some Mexican officers had damaged his shop. Other foreign nationals soon issued similar complaints, prompting the French government to send its fleet to Veracruz in the wake of Mexico's failure to provide redress. The year-long conflicted became known as the "Pastry War," and Santa Anna led the Mexican counter-effort. He re- established himself as a national hero through his bravery, even losing a leg in the process. The document reflects the mildly insurgent tone of the newly appointed Sonorese governor, Gen. Jose Urrea, and expresses Sonora's increasing hesitancy to follow the imperialist tendencies of the federal government. At this point Arizona was part of Sonora. Quite rare. OCLC locates only two copies. OCLC 23032403.
