    1887 Printing of the 1821 Mexican Declaration of Independence. One page, 17.5" x 25.5", in Spanish. A contemporary dedication, in ink, appears at the bottom from José Antonio Ulloa to "the last of my friends," Dr. Luis Gordoa dated September 25, 1887, from Zacatecas.

    The Declaration of Independence of the Mexican Empire was signed on September 28, 1821 and was the establishment of the modern nation of Mexico. Signatories include politicians, clergymen, and military leaders. One notable signatory is Agustin de Iturbide, who shortly after signing the Declaration was made President of the Regency and, in March of 1822, was crowned the first Emperor of Mexico, Agustin I, a position he would hold for less than one year.

    The document has two fold creases and paper loss at the crossfolds. There is dampstaining along the left side from top to bottom. A faint, ghosted, mirror image of ink is present on the bottom half of the print.
