These are the first American editions of Capmany's widely circulated attack on Napoleon, written "to awaken the energies of his countrymen, and to unite them in the glorious cause of their independence against the tyrannical usurper of Europe. It was written for Spaniards, but well deserves the particular attention of all nations, as it is truly a Sentinel, who, watching their liberties, now sounds the alarm on the approach of the enemy... Americans! read it with attention, and learn that your security depends more on a perfect knowledge of his wily politics, than on the distance which separates you, at present from his infernal grasp."
