[4],37pp. Small quarto. Modern morocco, titled in gilt on front board and spine. Titlepage slightly dusty, else quite clean and fresh. Near fine. "Segunda edicion. Corregida y Aumentada por su Autor," preceded only by a much briefer version of Arango y Parreno's essay in the periodical, EL REVISOR POLITICO Y LITERARIO on June 30, 1823. This is the first edition in book form, and more substantial than the earlier appearance - additional text has been added above and beyond the periodical appearance, including notes and a postscript. The conclusion of the present edition is dated September 12, 1823. Francisco de Arango y Parreno (1765-1837) was born on Cuba and educated as a lawyer. He became a prominent politician and landowner, and was a leader of reform movements on the island. A member of the Supreme Council of the Indies, he was appointed Cuban Minister of State in 1820, and Finance Minister in 1824. He argued for freer trade for Cuba, and the increased importation of slaves to enhance agricultural production. In this work he compares Cuba to the United States and argues that the situations of the two are different, and that Cuba under Spain was in a different condition than the United States on the eve of the American Revolution. Cubans were free, were allowed to trade freely, were represented in the Spanish parliament, and were not subject to arbitrary taxation. As such, Cuba had no need for formal independence from Spain, but rather existed comfortably in a relationship akin to that of Canada and England. This copy comes from the Coleccion Monclau, with their bookplate on the front pastedown. OCLC locates a total of only five copies, at the Library of Congress, Harvard, the Bancroft Library, Princeton, and the British Library. Rare, and an interesting argument against Cuban independence, by a leading politician. OCLC 26838670, 559354194, 14963922. PALAU 253238. SABIN 17804. N° de ref. de la librería WRCAM 45678
