About This Item

Mexico: en la oficina de Mariano de Zuniga y Ontiveros, 1806. Hardcover. Near Fine. First Mexican edition. Small quarto. Frontispiece and nine plates engraved by Jose Ambrosi Carraro, three of which have handsome and vivid contemporary hand coloring. Contemporary marbled calf with spine gilt. Lightly rubbed boards and older private bookplate and stamps, near fine. The most important edition of this Afro-Mexicanum illustrated book. Published originally in France in 1804, then translated into Spanish and published in Spain in 1805, this title tells of the revolution in Haiti, the personalities of the leaders of the revolution, and stresses the mob violence, excesses, and atrocities. The portraits of the leaders include Dessalines, Toussaint L'Ouverture, Christobal, and Biasou, as well as depicting graphic scenes of decapitation, dismembered bodies, dead babies, and executions. Dubroca was hired by the Bonaparte regime to conduct a propaganda war against Toussaint L'Ouverture, the leader of the slave revolt at Santa Domingue, and this work is a similar vilification of his successor, Dessalines. *Exhibition of Slavery and Justice, Selected Sources from the John Carter Brown Library*, number 22 (describing this edition). A beautiful copy of an interesting book.
