About this Item

2 vols., 412 & 427 pp., frontis., glossary. Brown blind-embossed cloth, top spine ends worn through, corners of first vol. worn. Contents very good but minor spotting on the endpapers & frontis of both vols. The author was the Scottish wife of the Spanish Minister to the U.S. who was sent to Mexico on a special mission after independence. This is the earliest and most balanced first-hand account of Mexico to be written by a woman. According to Robinson, her book was so detailed that it was used by the American Army as a guide during the campaign against Mexico in 1847. Robinson, Wayward Women, p. 233.
