A Compilation of Spanish and Mexican Law in Relation to Mines and Titles to Real Estate, in Force in California, Texas and New Mexico; and in the Territories Acquired Under the Louisiana and Florida Treaties, When Annexed to the United States. Volume I [ALL PUBLISHED]. Originally published: New York: John S. Voorhies, 1851. Reprinted 2011 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. With a New Introduction by Peter Reich, Professor of Law and Sumner Scholar; Director, Whittier Mexico City Program, Whittier Law School. xvi, xix, 663 pp. ISBN-13: 9781616190798. ISBN-10: 1616190795. Paperback. Light shelf wear. Else very good. $55.95 * From the series Foundations of Spanish, Mexican and Civil Law, Warren M. Billings, series editor. Reprint of the sole edition. Rockwell's Compilation addressed the needs of miners and other individuals who needed to reconcile Mexican land titles with the new U.S. laws that went into effect in the territory acquired by the United States in the recently concluded Mexican-American War (1846-48). An impressive achievement and a notable contribution to comparative law, it discusses Mexican mining and real estate laws, and their Spanish colonial antecedents, and offers comparisons to the common law of mines and mining. Also included are treaties and other general documents, such as the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo and Mexican colonization laws from 1823 to 1846, and a vocabulary of Spanish words. Recognized as an authority at the time of its publication, it remained a standard work for decades and is even cited today. " work is at this time a desideratum. Nothing could be more timely than a translation of the Mexican laws relating to mines and real estate. Our large acquisition of territory, and the rich mines found in it, will render this book indispensable, not only to every intelligent man migrating to this country, but to every lawyer who desires to be informed on so interesting a subject." --Millard Fillmore.
