FIRST EDITION. Sir Henry George Ward was the first British Chargé d'Affaires in Mexico, from 1825 to 1827. His primary goal was to prevent the United States from taking Mexican territory in the westward drive of "Manifest Destiny." He accurately foresaw the absorption of Texas into the United States, and sought to stem the tide of American immigrants into Northern Mexico. The plates illustrating the country, its inhabitants and their customs were prepared by T.M. Baynes from the art work of the author's wife, Lady Emily Swinburne Ward (1798-1882). Abbey Travel 668; Sabin 101302.
