    Very Early Extra Issue of the Quarterly of the Texas State Historical Association with a Letter of Transmittal. The "Extra", printed in Austin (7pp.) and dated May 1899, is in beige wrappers. The typed letter, dated May 25, 1958, provides some important provenance for the extra issue. Both are in fine condition.

    The Texas State Historical Association was organized in March 1897 with former governor Oran M. Roberts as its first president. This "Extra Edition" contains the Association's constitution, list of members, and advertisements for Texas books and the University of Texas. The provenance letter reads in part: "This extra issue of the quarterly from the library of Major A. J. Rose, one of the ten founders, was the first organized attempt of the charter members to extend the influence of the Association and the Quarterly. I do not know of any other copy extant, certainly it would be impossible to even think of one in better condition." Signed by Herbert Fletcher, a notable Texas bookseller and founder of Anson Jones Press.
