    [Texas Republic]. Laws passed by the Eighth Congress of the Republic of Texas. Houston: Cruger & Moore, 1844. 12mo, 120 pages. Abstract of Private Acts and Joint Resolutions, [iii]-viii. Index. Bound with 128 blank pages in the back. The Telegraph and Texas Register for April 10, 1844, has this comment: "The printing of the laws was completed on the 27th ult., within five days of the period designated in the contract of the public printers. They were delivered at the State Department on the 1st. inst. The index . . . will be printed in a few days and will be in readiness for distribution with the laws this week." Cruger & Moore's bill of April 1, 1844, was for 2000 copies (Mss. Archives, Texas State Library). These laws are given in a page-for-page reprint in Gammel, Vol. II, p. [913]-1046, except that in the Gammel reprint the Index precedes the Abstract of Private Acts and the imprint on the title page omits the name and address of the printer. Occasional minor foxing; moderate water staining throughout. Full gold-stamped leather over boards.
