This is the complete 26-issue volume of the Niles’ Weekly Register from March 1835 to September 1835 with a series of articles documenting the early stages of the Texas Revolution in 1835. The articles begin with the increase in the number of colonists (page 254), a note that “colonists of Texas are not likely to submit quietly to the military despotism of Santa Ana, but are arming themselves for resistance” (page 377), and later that the “affairs of Texas are fast approaching a crisis” (page 395). The final mention is that 2,500 Mexican troops are en route to Nacogdoches (page 434). 464 pages. Hardbound in attractive full leather binding with title label on spine.
