Author Not Indicated  
REPUBLIC OF GUATEMALA C. A., The: Information About the Country, Its Richness, Resources, etc.

Publisher: Consulate-General of Guatemala San Francisco California 1897.
Light blue paper wraps with San Francisco ads. 58 pages on the economy, industries, transportation, products, communications facilities, government, etc. in the late 19th Century. The writing is rather quaint in some entries, although it becomes specific and rather grim in its description of laws and regulations. Not quite a tourist guide - more of a "Guatemala at a glance" for potential entrepreneurs and investors, one would guess. The covers are fragile, somewhat soiled, chipped along the spine, and bear the small, faint rubber stamp of the Consulate on the front cover. Several pages have stains, edges darkened, a couple of corners creased, some toning. No writing or other marks, paper is fairly good quality and standing up to its age well. EPHEM 2678 Edition Not Stated Paperbound Good Minus Condition 24mo - over 5" - 5¾" tall Ephemera

Appr.: | AUD 59.46 CAD 60.84 EUR 40.00 GBP 33.13 JPY 5,500.00 MXN 687.50 ZAR 550.00

Guatemala. Verapaz.  
[Manuscript document stamped and signed at each of the founding municipalities of Vera Paz].
Publisher: 1881..
31 x 42 cm sheet folded. In line with the Spanish policy of "Congregation, " the Friar Pedro de Angulo attempted to gather the Indians in the area of Vera Paz province into larger, and thus more manageable, settlements, or “reducciones, ” as detailed in Captain Martin Alfonso Tovilla's account of 1635. Angulo succeeded in establishing ten villages by 1543 according to Tovilla: Santo Domingo de Cobán, San Pedro Carchá, San Agustín Lanquin, Santa Maria Chagbon [Cahabon], Santa Cruz Munchú, San Cristobal Caccho, Santa María Tactic, San Pablo de Tamaún, and San Miguel Tucurú, though additional settlements were added including La Tinta (Santa Cruz Cahaboncillo), Senahú, and Panzos. To commemorate this deed, a fast cordillera carrier was sent to make a circuit of these same villages, a feat he accomplished in 10 days. In 12 towns, an official has signed, dated, and usually stamped the document. A very good copy, some minor staining at the corners, perhaps where sealed.
