and exploration; projects for colonization; state papers; the Texas
Revolution; the Santa Fe and Mier expeditions; annexation;
maps; Texas novels; and "Indian captivities." The arrangement
of entries, as in Parts I and II, is alphabetical and chronological
with undated material arranged alphabetically at the end of each
year. Two appendices follow the main text of this bibliography;
Appendix A, speeches on Texas in the Congress of the United
States, and Appendix B, new entries for Parts I, II, and III, and
corrections and changes for entries in the last part of the bib-
liography. Of special interest in Part III are the descriptive ac-
counts of sixty maps relating to Texas.
This reviewer has praise for the work Thomas W. Streeter has
done. Who else but Streeter could have made so valuable a con-
tribution as this to Texas history; and where else but in his
Bibliography can be found so much valuable printed history?
While reading the third part of the Bibliography of Texas a letter
from a Texas book dealer who has a vast knowledge of the state's
history came to mind, for it read in part: "The latest addition
of two volumes is an absolute must for it is of everyday use..
I think Mr. Streeter has done a magnificent job; this is one bib-
liography that can be read just like a novel."
The fifty year span of Texas history (1795-1845), as recorded
by the imprints, along with the valuable comments supplied by
the author, do make Texas history come to life. No wonder
Streeter came to feel that, "The history of the Texas region for
this fifty-year period beginning in 1795 seemed to me more color-
ful and glamorous than any fifty-year period of any of our states,
except perhaps Massachusetts from 1620o to 1670o, and to constitute
an important part of the general history of the entire United
Special attention should be paid to the index. Streeter knows
the value of an index which he characterizes as "one of the most
important features of a regional bibliography." Entries are made
by authors, subjects, and titles. The number of each item referred
to is given and this is followed with the key word of the entry.
The date of publication of the item cited is given in parentheses
following each entry number.
