Poema guadalupano en forma de idilio análogo á las ocurrencias del día, que compuso el dr. d. Luis de Mendizabal y Zubialdea...

Mendizábal y Zubialdea, Luis de





14 pp. Ink manuscript in a miniscule hand. 21.5x15.8 cm (8½x6¼"), decorative unlettered wrappers.

Fair copy from the book printed by casa de Arizpe in 1811, but with a different dedicatee, this mss. dedicated to Francisco Pablo Vasquez on the title page, whereas the printed book is dedicated to  Manuel Ignacio Gonzalez del Campillo. However, laid in is a one-page poem headed ​“Dedicatoria al ylmo. Sr. Dr. Dn. Manuel Ygnacio Gonzalez del Campillo…” The poem itself is apparently reflective of the ongoing Mexican  War of Independence. OCLC/WorldCat lists only six copies of the printed book.
