About this Item

Controversial Mexican general and dictatorial seven-term president (1877-80, 1884-1911); forced into exile in Paris. Partly-printed DS in Spanish, 1p + integral blank, 11" X 17", Mexico City, Mexico, 1886 April 12. Very good. Faint age toning and mild edgewear. Two tax stamps at upper left. A large and decorative document featuring elaborate masthead image with ornate typefaces across the top and a partly-printed text granting Lyman Franklin Holman (born 1828, an American engineer) permission to use an "apparatus for pulverizing minerals and other hard substances." Signed huge and bold by Diaz and another official at the bottom. Docketed on verso. Affixed to the mostly-blank verso is a smaller (8" X 13") printed handbill -- boilerplate regulations regarding patents. In 1881 the American "Commissioners of Patents' Journals" recorded the issuance of a patent for this apparatus to Holman and one other person. Scarce and quite handsome. Bookseller Inventory # 39353
