Abstract

nICoLÁs KAneLLos University of Houston José Alvarez de Toledo y Dubois and the in the Early American Republic Publication of books and periodicals by Hispanics living in the early American republic began in three cities: New Orleans, Philadelphia, and New York. An examination of more than one hundred books and pamphlets published1 between 1800 and 1820 in these cities reveals that the motive for writing and publishing many of these in the United States by Spaniards and Creoles from throughout the Spanish colonies was political; that is, many Spanish and Spanish American intellectuals and revolutionaries had taken up exile precisely in the new American Republic to study its ideology and government institutions firsthand in order to learn from, translate and adapt them, and finally export their version of republicanism to incite or support independence movements in their homelands. In the case of the Spanish exiles, their efforts at first were predominantly aimed at restoring a parliament and a liberal king in opposition to the puppet government set up by Napoleon. At a time when the Spanish, French, and British empires and the newly expansionist United States were jockeying for geopolitical and territorial advantage over each other in anticipation
