    [Broadside] Decree Of The Congreso General Modifying The Law Of March 21, 1826, By Establishing A Separate Commandancy-General In Coahuila And Texas. [Mexico]. [1836]. [With heading:] Secretaria de Guerra y Marina. Seccion Central. - Mesa 1a. Four page folder printed on p. [1], Imperial Octavo. Approved by Miguel Barragán, President ad interim, January 13, 1836 and promulgated the same day by José Maria Tornel. During Santa Anna's first term as president, he revoked the liberal constitution of 1824 and ruled as a virtual dictator. Texas and a half dozen other provinces then declared themselves independent of the federal government until the return to constitutional principals. Santa Anna immediately relinquished the office to Barragán on a temporary basis, and headed north as "General Presidente," first to Zacatecas to confront rebels there, whom he defeated on 12 May, 1835, ransacking the city of Zacatecas and plundering the great silver mines. Then he marched north to pacify Texas. This broadside establishes new comandancias and their headquarters, a separate one being created specifically to handle the revolt then occurring in Texas. Fresh and clean, in a half-calf case with gilt lettering at the spine. Very fine. From the collection of Darrel Brown.

    Reference: Streeter Texas 872, locating only his copy which was apparently purchased from Eberstadt (162-834). Not in Dublan. Not in OCLC.
