LA SUCESION PRESIDENCIAL EN 1910, Francisco I. Madero, second edition, Mexico 1909. 8vo, 308pp. Black covers w/ leather spine; gilt stamping, marbled endpapers, and decorative diamond pattern to page edges. The second edition of this important book is considered the "true" edition, as Madero made numerous edits with additional writings, catapulting Madero and his ideas into the limelight, essentially pushing the masses into revolution against President Porfirio Díaz. Signed, dated, and inscribed by Madero on reverse of title page "A un querido amigo, el / inteligente escritor (Flavio?) / Guillen que de un / modo tan eficaz / me ayudo a dar a esta / segunda edicion, la / debida correccion en el / estilo. Mexico Mayo 25 1909" ("To my beloved friend, the intelligent writer (Flavio?) Guillen that in such an effective way helped me giving this second edition the proper correction in style".) 7 1/2" H x 5 1/2" W. Biography: Francisco I. Madero (Oct. 30, 1873 - Feb. 22, 1913), Mexican revolutionary and president from 1911-1913 until the coup that forced his resignation. During the early 20th Century, Madero was convinced that the problems of the Mexican peasantry came from the lack of democracy in their country. When President Díaz indicated that he would accept a free and fair election in 1910, Madero published [the pamphlet] "La sucesión presidencial en 1910"  (The Presidential Succession in 1910). [This second edition appeared in mid-1909 with numerous changes and additions that Madero considered essential, to such an extent that it could be stated that the second edition is the true version]. The party’s first convention attracted representatives from all but four states and territories. Díaz had Madero arrested in early June 1910 to keep him locked away during the 26 June election, but Madero escaped in early October and fled to San Antonio, Texas, where he wrote his call to Mexicans to rise up against the regime on 20 November, 1910, known as the Plan of San Luis. (Library of Congress, "The Rise of Francisco Madero").
