studies was begun, which has proved of great interest and of in-
estimable value to students of Mexico. The Bibliografia de Coa-
huila is of particular interest, because of the close connection that
existed during the Spanish colonial regime and after Mexican In-
dependence until 1836 between Coahuila and Texas. As the
author points out, Coahuila has a many-sided history, having been
intimately connected at different periods with five other States be-
sides Texas, towit: Nuevo Leon, Nueva Vizcaya (Durango),
Nueva Galicia (Jalisco), Zacatecas, and San Luis Potosi. To
students of the history of the Southwest, the present bibliography
is indispensable and will prove of great value.
The work is divided into four sections, covering the history of
Coahuila (incidentally Texas) from the earliest times to the
present. Naturally, it is far from being complete and the author
makes no such claims. In the first section he has listed about 614
different books and pamphlets, many of which deal directly with
the history of Texas. In the second he presents a list of news-
papers either published in Coahuila or dealing entirely with the
interests of the State. The list consists of 191 newspapers. In
the third part he has compiled a list of 138 maps, among these
being included the Austin Map of 1829, and the routes of the va-
rious entradas into Texas found in the Archives of the Indies in
Seville. The last section comprises manuscripts only. Though
the author has largely used Bolton's Guide, as he himself says, he
has added a good many items found in private collections to which
Bolton did not have access. Several maps are reproduced in colors,
the most interesting one being that of the Provincias Internas
drawn by order of Arredondo in 1815.
Taken as a whole, the Bibliografia de Coahuila is of inestimable
value to all students of the Southwest, and particularly of Texas,
and comes to fill a great need in this field.
