An unrecorded printing of the 1852 Sinaloa state constitution. Francisco de la Vega came to power as governor of the state at the beginning of 1852 with the intention of instituting large-scale fiscal and administrative reforms, of which this constitution was a part. The attempts to improve the state control and collection of taxes led to a revolt in Mazatlan, where this pamphlet was published, and forces under the command of Pedro Valdes defeated Vega near Culiacan and sacked the city in October of the same year, before compelling his final surrender in March 1853. Other examples of this short-lived Mexican state constitution are not located in OCLC.
