April 07, 1888

THE OLD CAPITOL, Columbia, Texas, April 7, 1888 

* Very rare Southwest publication

Yes, Columbia--now known as West Columbia--was the first formal capital of Texas, established in 1836. A quite rare title which existed for less than 2 years. Only one institution has a substantial holding of this title and its file is not complete.
The content is primarily concerning Texas, with a wealth of ads as well.
Four pages, 19 1/4 by 12 1/4 inches, archivally strengthened at the spine, nice condition. Slightly fragile so it should be handled carefully.
