Arosemena, Justo.  Examen sobre la franca comunicacion entre los dos oceanos por el istmo de Panama. Bogotá: Imp. de Jose A. Cualla, 1846. 8vo (21 cm; 8.25"). [2] ff., 41, [1] pp., [1 ("notas)] f.

Proposal for a canal across the Isthmus to be financed and at least partially build by "major foreign nations." Discusses need for exploration of possible routes, advantages of such a canal, and need for finances and Colombian governmental support.
        The copy has a final leaf not noted in the WorldCat record (based on the BL cataloguing of its copy).
        Searches of NUC, WorldCat, and COPAC locate four U.S. (CalBerkeley, UGeorgia, UChicago, UTexas) and one British (BL) libraries reporting ownership, but we know of another U.S. library that owns a unreported copy.

Sewn as issued; sewn. Title-leaf and next one slightly damaged in blank areas. Fore-edges with evidence of silverfish damage. Some damp staining. Still a rather decent copy.  (38708)   Please RESHELVE This.
