BIBLIOGRAPHY OF TEXAS 1795-1845, PART III, UNITED STATES ...
by Streeter, Thomas W.
Limited to 600 copies for each vol. Besterman 6067. Third and final part in two volumes of the five-volume bibliography of early Texas by Thomas Winthrop Streeter (1885-1965), the well-known collector of Americana. One may be surprised to learn that the major class of imprint up to the establishment of the Texas Republic seems to be the publications of land speculators and promoters of colonization schemes, both in the United States and Europe (particularly Germany). The stream of real-estate promotions scarcely slackens during the Texas War of Independence, concerning which we learn relatively little, and only at the end of this war do the land-settlement promotions and disputes yield precedence to another kind of publication: the often bitter annexation debate in the United States, a foretaste of the polarization of the 1850's. Frequently lengthy annotations generally contain historical and biographical information, references, and holdings locations (often including Streeter's own collection). Six hundred thirty-four main entries, frequently with subentries for variants or later editions. Index. Dust jackets soiled, chipped, torn.
