(Mexico: Reimpreso por Jose M. F. de Lara, Calle de la Palma número 4, 1827.) 122 pp. Large Octavo. First edition with printed paper wrappers. Wrapper title: Contestaciones Habidas entre la Legacion Extraordinaria de Mexico y el Departamento de Estado de los Estados-Unidos. Año de 1837. Translated title: Answers Had between the Special Envoy of Mexico and the State Department of the United States. Year of 1837. On verso of back wrapper is vignette of arms of Mexico and below: Impreso por J.M.F. de Lara.

    Written and published by Manuel Eduardo de Gorostiza, special envoy of Mexico to the United States, this pamphlet contains a 21-page introduction attacking the good faith of the United States in sending its troops across the Sabine as far as Nacogdoches. Gorostiza's commentary was bitterly resented in Washington and fuel was added to the flames when the diatribe was republished in Mexico, early in 1837. The reprint led to a rapid deterioration of diplomatic relations with Mexico which did not resume until 1839, following a renouncement of the inflammatory comments made by Gorostiza by the then-serving Mexican special envoy to Washington. A most important pamphlet attacking the good faith of the U.S. in sending Gaines across the Sabine to occupy Nacogdoches. Brown half-leather with tan canvas boards, gilt-lettered spine. In fine condition. From the collection of Darrel Brown.

    Reference: Streeter 1220A. Raines, p. 95. Sabin 16908.
