Mexico : Imprenta del Lic. D. Joseph de Juaregui, 1776.
The author (1742-1814) was a native of Mexico, a printer, and the author of several works, but is chiefly remembered as the publisher of the “Gazetas de México.” The present work is a “romance en decasilabo” recounting Gálvez’s achievements in Mexico, including his role in the politics and activities in Florida, Texas, California, and the Spanish Southwest. A very good example of popular culture poetry and a scarce work.
