Description[Texas Republic]. Laws of the Republic of Texas, Passed at the Session of the Fifth Congress - Second Issue, Signed by Peter W. Gray. Houston: Telegraph Power Press. 1841. Second issue with same title, imprint, and date as the first, but including four additional acts on p. 185-189 (approved February 3-5, 1841), and with the appendix of proclamations separately paginated. The statement in the Morning Star (Houston) of March 6, 1841, that "the laws of the last session will be published within eight or ten days from this time, and will then be on sale at the Telegraph Office," probably refers to this issue. One of the two proclamations by Lamar gives the text of the Treaty with France signed at Paris, September 25, 1839. For the Gammel reprint of the laws see note to Streeter 479A, that for the second issue.
This copy was originally owned by Peter W. Gray, founder of the Houston law firm Baker and Botts, 1866. Signed by Gray on title page, with holograph notations throughout appendix and index. Full gold-stamped leather binding. Significant age toning throughout with occasional minor foxing.
Reference: Streeter Texas 479A. Raines, p. 230. Sabin 95000, note.

This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.View More Testimonials
