“Muera el Yankee”


Ya el Yankee la paz pretende, pero el gobierno le dice poco tiempo...yo no entiendo. Dialogo entre Liberata Polka, y Patricia la Ranchera. [San Luis Potosí]: Imprenta del estado, á cargo de Ventura Carrillo, [1847?]. [2] pp. Folio (31.5 x 21 cm) in two columns. Lower left and upper right blank corners wanting, a few small holes touching letters and small holes in left margin, but otherwise good. Rare. Only one copy on OCLC.

First edition. Not in usual Mexican-American War sources.

A philosophical, historical, and political dialogue in which Liberata argues that the Mexican nation has become blind to both its history and present events. Patricia is the foil to Liberata and eventually agrees that she would sacrifice her only son for the country. Santa-Anna is praised, as is general Valencia, who died in early 1848. A singular production.
