A CURSORY VIEW OF SPANISH AMERICA, PARTICULARLY THE NEIGHBOURING VICE-ROYALTIES OF MEXICO AND NEW-GRENADA, CHIEFLY INTENDED TO ELUCIDATE THE POLICY OF AN EARLY CONNECTION BETWEEN THE UNITED STATES AND THOSE COUNTRIES
Georgetown: Richards and Mallory, 1815.. 41pp. plus errata page. Dbd. Stain and chip near foredge of titlepage, barely affecting title. Uniform light tanning. About very good. In a half morocco box. An interesting early manifestation of the principles of the Monroe Doctrine. Robinson advocates quick action in foiling the joint designs of England and Spain on the new territory of Louisiana, citing evidence that the British have been supplying Indians with arms and munitions in Spanish-controlled Florida. He claims that, should Spain unite with England, the last vestiges of her independent colonial power will be forfeited, and that this forfeiture would clear the way for the United States to rid herself of any remaining European authority in the New World. An aggressive argument, born out of the crisis of the invasion of Louisiana by the British at the close of the War of 1812. Robinson would later be involved in various conspiracies in Texas and northern Mexico, including the attempt of Xavier Mina to seize Texas. Not in Servies. SABIN 72200. SHAW & SHOEMAKER 35799.
