Description

    [Texas Republic] Laws Passed by the Ninth Congress of the Republic of Texas. Published by Authority. Washington: Miller & Cushney, Public Printers. 1845. First edition. 8vo. 134 pp. plus Index. Disbound and stitched with creases and wear to wrappers. Holograph notations on first page indicate this copy was the property of the Custom House at Marshal, Harrison County. Light to moderate age toning; moderate foxing throughout. Very good condition.

    One of the rarer reports from the Republic's Congress, this issue includes the first printing of the act creating Baylor University. Also includes an Address to the People of Texas with regard to annexation. Of special note is the first printing of the important treaty between the Republic of Texas and the Texas Comanche which was signed October 1845 and ratified in December. It established a line of trading houses which would later serve as the demarcation line between Texas and Comancheria, but this deliberately vague definition would be the source of future troubles as the frontier between Anglo and Comanche land expanded westward.
