Description:

Chile Broadside July 9, 1812.
5 1/2 x 7 3/4 in., mounted and framed, corners held in place by four red gummed labels, old folds, some minor spotting and edge browning.
This broadside is listed as number 25 in Jose Toribio Medina's Bibliografia de la Imprenta en Santiago de Chile. Medina did not see a copy, but has inferred its existence because the Santiago newspaper La Aurora de Chile makes reference to its printing, and the same lines appear in print in their July 9, 1812 issue. The U.S. Consul to Chile, General Poinsett, hosted a party introducing a new Chilean flag on July 4, 1812. The planned coincidence of the date gave rise to the publication of these patriotic verses, along with an article on the official fourth of July flag raising.
Estimate $200-300
