    E. W. Swindells, Texas State Printer, "Report of the State Sewer Board." Austin: E. W. Swindells, 1883. 5.75" x 9.25". 18pp. Original staples, with toned pages. A stray, heavy-handed cut exists through the lower margin of the imprint, though no text is lost. Very good.

    More Information:

    A special session of the Texas legislature in 1882 passed a law providing the funds of the construction of a state sewer system, which would serve "the lunatic asylum, State University, State Capitol, and institute for the blind." The state sewer board, which issued this report, was comprised of the heads of the boards of each of the institutions served.
