The Pros and Cons

<p>Upper wrapper</p>


[GUADALUPE HIDALGO, TREATY OF]. Observaciones acerca del parecer fiscal y acuerdo de la Corte Suprema de Justicia sobre el ocurso que le dirigieron once señores diputados, reclamando la inconstitucionalidad de los tratados de paz, celebrados con el gobierno Anglo-Americano. Mexico City: Impreso por Manuel F. Redondas, calle de la Escalerillas número 2, 1848. [1-3] 4-21 [1, blank] pp. 8vo (20.5 x 13.5 cm), original printed beige wrappers, ornamental border, stitched. Very fine.

First edition. Garrett & Goodwin, p. 93. Harper 12:406. Sutro 840.

The public release of the treaty caused an enormous public uproar. Eleven deputies of the Mexican legislature had challenged the constitutionality of the treaty, thus forcing the Attorney General to issue an opinion and the Court to review it. This is an anonymous, well-reasoned rebuttal of the decision of the Mexican Supreme Court upholding the Attorney General’s opinion. A basic document in the dispute among the various factions concerning the acceptance of the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo.
