    Wm. Ogden Niles [editor]. Niles' Weekly Register, From September, 1836, To March, 1837 - Vol. LI or, Volume XV. - Fifth Series. Containing Political, Historical, Geographical, Scientifical, Statistical, Economical and Biographical. Documents, Essays and Facts: Together with Notices of the Arts and Manufactures, and a Record of the Events of the Times. The Past - The Present - For the Future. Baltimore: Printed by the Editor at the Franklin Press, [1837]. 4to, vii, 416 pages. Index. Simulated mottled calf. Gilt stamped red leather title label to spine. Spine in six sections, separated by double-ruled gilt. Light foxing throughout. Several pages crinkled, with horizontal folds (as mailed to subscribers) still present in this bound collection. Covers worn along edges. Spine lightly faded. Large water stain to back cover. A couple of pages are uncut and extend beyond the fore-edge and bottom edge. Despite the water stain, this is a very good copy.

    With regard to Texas, this collection contains news on Texas slavery and David G. Burnet's "Message of the President, to the First Congress of the Republic of Texas" (Columbus, October 4, 1836). The same issue contains "Santa Anna's Protest" to Burnet (June 9, 1836) and "President Burnet's Answer" (Velasco, June 10, 1836) as reprinted from the Texas Telegraph of October 4, 1836.

    Niles' Weekly Register was a nationally-circulated publication founded in 1811 by economic nationalist Hezekiah Niles (whose son William Ogden Niles took over as editor in 1836) and was one of the most widely-circulated and influential magazines of its day. Devoted primarily to politics, it offered an unbiased account of the events of the early- to mid-nineteenth century and is considered the paper of record for its age.
