Forty-seventh Legislature, containing Constitution of Texas, Rules of the House of Representatives, Rules of the Senate, and Joint Rules of the Two Houses... [Austin: The State of Texas, 1941].

Large 8vo. 505 pp. Bound in full red leatherette with gilt titles, state seal, and ownership name to front. Covers well worn and rubbed with some light folding, threading, and abrading to bumped corners. Pages lightly toned with some mildewing to rear pastedown and light dampstaining to rear pages.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
