    Description

    [Texas Republic]. Laws of the Republic of Texas, Passed at the Session of the Fifth Congress. Printed by order of the Secretary of State. Houston: Telegraph Power Press, 1841. 8vo, 189 pages (Pages go from 1 to 162, but then start over at 155 before continuing through 189). Appendix. Errata leaf. Indexed. Bound in modern red Moroccan with spine label attached. Areas of waterstaining along the page edge and lower right corner. Page edges are chipped in places. Heavily toned and foxed throughout.

    Second issue with same title, imprint, and date as the first, but including four additional acts on p. 185 through 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, for the second issue. Includes An Act for the Relief of Certain Free Persons of Color and An Act Regulating the Sale of Runaway Slaves.

    Reference: Streeter 415, 478, 479A. Raines, p. 230. Sabin 95000, note.
