    The Constitution of the Mexican United States and The Constitution of Cuahuila [sic] and Texas, 26 pages and 34 pages, respectively, 4.75" x 7.25". Chillicothe [Ohio]: Printed by R. Kercheval, 1829. This Chillicothe edition of English translations of the Coahuila and Texas Constitution (Streeter 1106) and the Mexican Constitution of 1824 (Streeter 1108) were apparently printed at the same time by Kercheval and stitched together, though each has an individual title page and pagination. The Mexican Constitution precedes that of Coahuila and Texas in this example. This is apparently the third printing in English of the Mexican Constitution, the first at Tuscumbia, Alabama, in 1825 and the second at Natchez, Mississippi, in 1826, and the second printing in English of the Coahuila and Texas Constitution, the first being at Natchitoches, Louisiana, in 1827. The two constitutions were bound together in contemporary plain stiff blue-gray paper wrappers; the front wrapper is missing. Bound in string, the title page of the Mexican Constitution, now the "cover page," is soiled with a few holes, and chipped at edges, indicating the original blue-gray wrapper was removed a long time ago. Its owner, J.H. Prim, has signed his name atop the first page. Overall, in very good condition. Housed in a custom clamshell case with the spine in six compartments with five raised bands, lettered in gilt, "Constitutions/Coahuila and Texas 1827/The Mexican United States 1824/Chillicothe, Ohio 1829." From the collection of Darrel Brown.

    Reference: Streeter 1106 and 1108
