    [Texas Republic] Laws of the Republic of Texas, in Two Volumes. Houston: Printed at the Office of the Telegraph, 1838. Two 8vo volumes. 276, v; 122, v pp. Indices. Bound in modern three-quarter brown morocco. Gilt lettering to spines. Marbled endpapers. Foxing throughout. Very good.

    The first two issues of Volume I (published in 1837) contain a certificate of R. A. Irion, secretary of state, regarding the incompleteness of those editions. With the publication of this1838 imprint, the certificate is no longer present. "Vol. I here seems to be from the same setting of type as the second issue of the Laws, published in 1837 [...] except for the new 1838 title page and the absence of the statement of the Secretary of State Irion, which was given on p. [1] of the 1837 issues. It contains all the laws passed at the two sessions of the First Congress. Vol. II gives the laws passed at the called and regular sessions of the Second Congress, the first being a joint resolution approved September 30, 1837, and the last a joint resolution approved December 29, 1837" (Streeter).

    Raines, p. 230. Sabin 94995-94996. Streeter 275.
