The collection contains 17th century Mexican colonial documents relating to land tenure in the Itzmiquilpa region of Mexico;
inspection reports from Mexican mines dating from the late 18th and early 19th centuries; two papal documents, dated ca. 1805
and 1811; a handwritten supplement to a manual of Mexican agriculture, dated 1869; and an autograph letter signed by Pablo
Macedo in 1908. The materials are written in Spanish. They relate largely to Mexican legal matters and mining interests, although
other subjects are represented.
Pablo Macedo y González Saravia was born in Mexico City on February 1, 1851. His father may have been Mariano Macedo (d. 1869),
a minister in the government of General Mariano Arista. A disciple of Gabino Barreda (1818-1881), Pablo Macedo became a lawyer
and served as a professor of political economy at the Escuela de Leyes (School of Law). He was the author of La evolución mercantil; Comunicaciones y obras públicas; La Hacienda pública: tres monografías que dan idea de una parte de
la evolución económica de México (Mexico: J. Bollesca, 1905). He died in Spain on December 25, 1918.
