A rare report on La Ciudad de México presented to Emperor Maximilian during his reign. Contains extensive information on the city and its people issued for the second half of 1866. The last third is an appendix containing "Coleccion de las disposiciones de policia dictadas en el ano de 1866" detailing municiple ordinances for the full year. (An earlier report was issued for the first half of 1866, ran 66 pages, and had a map; two more half year reports were issued the following year, which is as long as Maximilian's reign lasted). Ignacio Trigueros (1805-1879) held many government positions and was minister of Finance under Santa Anna. All four issues are quite uncommon. OCLC locates this report at Cal. State, Lehigh, Univ. Texas at Austin, Stanford, Univ. Iberoamericana, and BN Mexico.
