About this Item

Folio, recent marbled boards. Caption title. Fine condition. (1 l., printed on both sides). *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION? Consists of a 4-line "Epigrafe" followed by a 60-line "Oda". Juan María de Villavicencio y de la Serna (Medina-Sidonia, 2/22/1755 - Madrid, 4/25/1830) was a member of the third Consejo de Regencia under D. Fernando VII, 1812-1813), and Capitán General de la Armada, 1817-1830. When this poem was written he had been promoted from commanding Havana to commanding the naval infantry in Cadiz and had been named to the regency council. Trisadra mentions in a note that while in charge of Havana, Villavicencio had cut taxes on working boats in the harbor, with much benefit to commerce there. He also mentions France with disdain, for example, "Españoles insanos, Que seguis las vanderas de la Francia ."*** Not in Trelles. Not in Palau. Not in Ford & Raphael.
