    Indice de las Ordenes y Decretos espedidos por el Honorable Congreso de este Estado, desde el año de 1824, hasta fin de el de 1828. Translation: Index Of The Orders And Decrees By The Honorable Congress Of This State, Since The Years 1824 To End Of 1828. [Leona Vicario] March 30, 1829. [8] p. Quarto. Dated and signed in print at end: Secretaria del supremo gobierno del Estado de Coahuila y Tejas 30 de Marzo de 1829. Santiago de Valle. Secretario. This useful compilation indexes the proceedings of the Constituent Congress on pages [1-3] and those of the Constitutional Congress on pages [4-8], providing official documentation regarding the joining together of the Mexican provinces of Nuevo León, Coahuila, and Texas.

    The first step in the process was to detach Nuevo León (May 7, 1824), then elect a constituent congress. This was accomplished at Saltillo in August 1824, when a provisional governor was named for the state. The same month, a provisional chief was appointed for Texas. Four months later, in December 1824, the Department of Texas was legally established as a subdivision of the state of Coahuila and Texas. On March 11, 1827, The Constitution of Coahuila and Texas was adopted with the state being divided into three departments. That number was eventually increased to seven departments: Saltillo, Parras, Monclova, Rosas, Bexar, Brazos, and Nacogdoches. Contemporary gray cloth case with leather spine, gilt lettering. A few areas of minor foxing, else very fine. From the collection of Darrel Brown.
