Additional tets for tlhe Widder Check
,ist of rezas Jmpri#ts, 1846-1860
N the preface to his Check List of Texas Imprints, z846-z860,
Ernest W. Winkler wrote: "The Check List, while not defini-
tive, indicates the character of the matter printed in Texas,
and furnishes an anchorage for such titles as may be turned up
hereafter. To facilitate the recording of discoveries the publisher
has provided a section of blank leaves." The following titles are
entries for those leaves. Thomas W. Streeter commented in the
foreword that it was "unlikely that more than a few remain un-
recorded," and the addition of less than thirty titles in eleven
years substantiates his confidence in the thoroughness of the
Winkler search. Winkler would have been the one to rejoice most
in the location of new entries, in the description of pieces which
he knew existed but had not seen (as in the case of his numbers
276 and 697), and in the removal of a query about the publica-
tion of further issues of a magazine (as is made possible by the
location of the September, 1858, number of the Texian Monthly
Magazine). Most of the titles come from materials collected by
Governor E. M. Pease and carefully preserved by the R. Niles
Graham family. Again Winkler would be pleased that these
Texas imprints are now housed either at the University of Texas
or in the Austin-Travis County Collection at the Austin Public
Library, a library which he helped to organize and of whose
original governing board he was a member.
