    [Texas Revolution] Ordinances and Decrees of the Consultation, Provisional Government of Texas and the Convention Which Assembled at Washington March 1, 1836. By Order of the Secretary of State. Houston. 1838. 4to. 156 pp. including a three-page Index that did not issue with all copies. Disbound and stitched; title page has separated. Faint age toning throughout. Very fine.

    Contains the Declaration of the People of Texas in General Convention Assembled" and the Plan and Powers of the Provisional Government of Texas. As noted by Eberstadt (162:195), this issue also contains "the ad interim constitution enacted [March 16, 1836] by the harassed convention while the enemy was literally thundering at the gates of the town of Washington, Texas." Gilcrease-Hargrett also comments on this work, stating that it contains "Highly important acts on the negotiations of treaties with the Cherokees and the Comanches." A rare and outstanding addition to any Texana collection.
