The first American printing of the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, ending the Mexican War and adding California and much of the Southwest to the United States. This official Senate printing of the treaty provides a linear history of the negotiations between the United States and Mexico, including pages of previously-secret correspondence between the American government and its agents, Nicholas Trist and John Slidell. Several Mexican documents, un-translated, are also included. The amount of land acquired by the United States with this treaty was on par with the Louisiana and Alaska purchases.

We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.View More Testimonials
