About this Item

Mexico: Impreso por Ignacio Cumplido, 1837. 98pp. Modern calf, ruled in gilt, gilt leather spine label. Faint blindstamp in upper outer corner of titlepage. Light even tanning, scattered foxing. Good. An important study of events in Texas by the former Minister Plenipotentiary of Mexico to the United States. As the Mexican minister in Washington Tornel was highly sensitive to questions of American colonization in Texas, and one of the prime features of this work is his report on Texas colonization contracts from 1825 to 1834. In 1837 Tornel was the Mexican Secretary of War and Marine, and Streeter describes this work as being written "with considerable venom." He reviews the history of Texas to after the Battle of San Jacinto, seeing in all American moves in Texas the fulfillment of the "Manifest Destiny" impulse. Most significantly, Tornel urges Mexico to fight on in the Texans' war for independence, foretelling that the loss of Texas would ultimately result in Mexico's loss of California and New Mexico.
