    Description

    Mexico (Republic). Decree Separating Coahuila from Texas, one page imprint, 8.5" x 12", December 30, 1836. The decree, issued under the authority of Luis Madrid, divides the Mexico into as many Departments as there formerly were States, separating Coahuila from Texas and authorizing the central government to locate the capital of Texas where most convenient when order is re-established there. [Toluca, January 5, 1837]. Very fine. Housed in a handsome custom quarter red morocco over red cloth clamshell case, the spine in compartments with five raised bands and lettered in gilt. From the collection of Darrel Brown.

    Reference: An unrecorded Toluca broadside issue of Streeter 882. "Had this decree been passed in 1833, Texas might be a Mexican state today" (Eberstadt 162:581).
