    Description

    Simon Bolivar Document Signed as President of Colombia. "Simon Bolivar." 8.5" x 12.75", Caracas, August 4, 1822. Bolivar adds his bold signature with characteristic flourish to the appointment of Pedro Morales to Commissioner of War. Bolivar's name is decisively printed at the top adding the title: "LIBERTADOR PRESIDENTE DE LA REPUBLICA DE COLOMBIA, &c. &c. &c."

    At the time, Bolivar was head of what was then known -- albeit briefly -- as Gran Colombia, consisting of present day Colombia, Panama, Ecuador, Venezuela, and the northern portions of Peru and Brazil. Bolivar would declare himself dictator the next year and narrowly escaped an assassination attempt. After Venezuela and Ecuador seceded from the "union" in 1830, Bolivar resigned, disillusioned and in poor health. Lightly soiled with untrimmed edges. There are a few small holes, one of which obscures some text. An inscription on the verso and the ink has bled through, but the text on the recto is fine. The greater portion of a red wax seal is still present in the lower left. Very good.
