Valenzuela, VI, 119. As issued; one small piece of blank paper torn from lower outer corner. Overall age-toning. (31054)
This is a 180-degree turn-around stance from that of 12 November 1859 when the town published a decree fully supporting Barrios.
Pres. Carrera of Guatemala, a Conservative with ambitions to control all of Central America, did unseat Barrios and in October of 1863 installed Francisco Dueñas as president.
The meeting at which this document was drafted occurred on 27 February 1863, months prior to the Guatemalan invasion, but this first printed version did not appear until after the fall of Barrios and the installation of the Conservative government. It is dated 11 November 1863.
A postscript to the “Pronunciamiento” states “esta acta no se pudo dar a luz en su oportunidad por haber sido persequidos, encarcelados y confiscados los firmantes.” The names of the signers are present (in type) above the postscript.
Searches of WorldCat, COPAC, CCILA, and Metabase locate no copies.
Top margin crumpled and with a few tears and some small loss of paper, but not of text. One horizontal fold. (31068)
It is handsomely printed using several point sizes of roman and italic, with center justification in the top portion and full justification below. Around the printed area are wide margins on the four sides, which margins contain16 large, crisp, evenly spaced impressions of the city of Toledo's double-headed eagle, with crown above, sword in its right talon and mace in its left.
Broadsides were an important source of income for handpress-era printers in Europe and Spanish America and the printers offered “package deals” to the families of the graduate and post-graduate degree postulants; the packages were geared to the students' families' economic means. Broadsides could be large (folio) or small (8vo), have an engraving or not, have a border of type ornaments or not, and be printed on standard paper or colored paper (usually blue); if one splurged, one could get the announcement printed, as here, on silk. The usual total number of copies printed for each candidate is unknown at this time, but is likely to have been only one or two dozen, and we also don't know if more than one silk copy was printed when that top option was in fact ordered. In extravagant cases, one can imagine one for the degree candidate, one for the parents, one for each godparent, etc.; still, such cases would probably have been few.
Certainly, the printers would have been willing to rake in as much money as possible, on each happy occasion, and these richly beautiful silk mementos — doubtless proudly displayed for years going forward in homes or offices — would have been excellent ongoing advertisements. Equally clearly, however, the number of copies of all of the defense broadsides surviving is small, and the survival of those on silk is very small.
No copies of this broadside are traced via the usual bibliographies, nor via NUC, WorldCat, COPAC, KVK, CCPB, or the OPACs of University of Toledo and the national library of Spain.
Rose-colored silk, with old folds; sun-fading variously and rather attractively approaching pinks and apricots. Sides “accented” by an attractive retained green and white selvage edge; bottom edge hemmed and top one, possibly once so, now with fraying and a bit of ravelling; near the broadside's center, a round hole costs six letters. Still, at 230+ years old, frankly gorgeous. (39844)
Gardner commands and authorizes Timothy Hartshorn, “constable or collector” in Reading, to collect for the state more than 8,500 pounds.
Provenance: Pencil note on verso “S.C. Hamilton, #190, 1/21/55" and the code zvt (not in cursive); another pencil note on verso “zhq” in cursive above “5.00.”
Not in Evans; not in Shipton & Mooney; not in Bristol; not in ESTC; not in NAIP. Full-margined copy with old folds and with old and new repairs to these on the verso; some slight darkening in the imprint area. Official paper and wax seal present in upper left margin. (41505)
The specifications of the verso are: Imprint area: 42 x 153 mm. Number of lines of text: 9. First line: que vuestro lugar y minombre podays hazer et sostituyr este poder en vna per Last line: la clausula judicium sisti iudicatum con sus clausulas acostumbradas Blanks: at the end of lines 4 & 9 and the beginning of 5.
The document was sworn in Puebla on 11 December 1565, before the notary Juan de Bedoya, and in it Francisco Guilen, a citizen of Puebla, gives his power of attorney to Hernando de RIbas, a resident in Veracruz.
Valton (see below) attributed this formulary to Juan Pablos. It bears no relation to the examples of his job printing that we have seen; it does, however, bearthe hallmarks of Ocharte's craftsmanship. The date of this form's printing is based on the exemplar in the Beinecke Library at Yale, where the earliest manuscript date on the carta is 9 October 1565. Assignment of printer is based on types and ornaments.
An excellent, early example of Mexican job printing, with the earliest known example of such job printing having been dated in manuscript in 1562.
Szewczyk & Buffington, 39 Books and Broadsides Printed in America before the Bay Psalm Book, 6 (for the exemplar now at Yale), fully illustrated. Appears to be Carpenter's type 4, attributed by Valton to Juan Pablos. See: Carpenter, A Sixteenth Century Broadside from the Collection of Emilio Valton, and also see, Juan Pascoe, Tratado breve sobre un formulario notarial, which is a study of a different copy of this precise notarial form (which, unfortunately, had its manuscript completion misdated as being 1562 when it is in fact 1566). Removed from a bound volume and slightly tattered in inner margin. One worm hole (pinhole type) in lower blank margin. A very good example of Ocharte's job printing and an attractive one, with its manuscript completions both bold and legible. (41005)
Printed on two sheets precisely glued together to form a seamless whole, in double-column format and with the woodcut seal of the Inquisition in the lower right corner of the lower edge.
Garritz located only the copy in the Biblioteca Nacional and WorldCat locates only seven U.S. institutions holding copies.
Garritz, Impresos novohispanos, 1137. Not in Palau; Medina, Mexico; Ziga & Espinosa, Adiciones a la imprenta en Mexico; González de Cossío, 510, or González de Cossío, Cien. Old folds; a few small wormholes touching or costing a very few letters and one larger hole costing five letters, but not impeding reading sense. Slight discoloration along the area where the two sheets are pasted together and at points on vertical fold. (34599)
Not in Sutro. Removed from a nonce volume; lower third wrinkled. Otherwise clean and crisp. (32340)
