Young, James Hamilton, b. 1793.

A New Map of Texas, with the Contiguous American & Mexican States by J.H. Young.

Philadelphia: Published by S. Augustus Mitchell. Entered … by S. Augustus Mitchell in the ... eastern district of Pennsylvania. [At foot, below neat line:] Engraved by J.H. Young. [At left of title:] Sold by Mitchell & Hinman No 6 North Fifth Street. 1843

1178F; Another edition [of entry No. 1178] with the date 1843, with same title, copyright notice, scale, prime meridians, insets with changes in text, etc., as before, including "Sold by Thomas, Cowperthwait", etc.; The same plate is used for all editions of this map and it covers substantially the same area as the Burr map first published in 1833 (entry No. 1134). The 1835 edition (entry No. 1178A) of the Young map shows in colors, but on a considerably smaller scale, the land grants shown on the Burr map of 1833. These continue to be shown through the 1839 edition (entry No. 1178D), but in the 1842 edition (entry 1178E) counties take their place. The error in the Burr map of running the boundary between Texas and Louisiana about half a degree too far west is not repeated in the Young map and perhaps to emphasize this, the 1836, 1837, 1839, and 1842 editions of the Young map have a legend along this boundary reading, "Boundary of 1819." In the 1838 edition (entry No. 1178C) "City of Houston" appears for the first time, and the town of Aurora, not shown on modern maps, is located at the junction of the Neches and the Sabine. My copy of the 1842 edition is bound in with my copy in original cloth of Foote's Texas and the Texans, Philadelphia, 1841 (entry No. 1377). Young, born in Scotland in 1793, for several years, beginning about 1830, was employed by Samuel Augustus Mitchell to engrave the maps attached by Mitchell to his Guides and his Geographies. The Dictionary of American Biography in its article on Mitchell says that many of Mitchell's earlier maps "were engraved by J.H. Young, and compare favorably with the contemporary work of John Arrowsmith, the younger, distinguished English map maker."; Locations: DLC. TxDaM. TxGR. TxU.

Zavala, Lorenzo de, 1789-1836.

Opinion de Don Lorenzo de Zavala sobre el Estado Politico Actual de los Estados Unidos Mejicanos, Dirigida a la Asamblea de Ciudadanos de Lynchburg, Lugar de su Residencia.

[At end:] En la imprenta de Baker y Bordens, San Felipe de. Austin. [1835]

112; [Text begins:] Invitado para concurrir á la junta de ciudadanos ... 8 del corriente Agosto ... tengo el sentimiento de no poder asistir personalmente ... [Signed and dated at foot of second column:] Lorenzo de Zavala. Sloop Point, Tejas, Agosto 7, de 1835. [Followed by "Postscriptum" signed by Zavala and dated:] San Felipe de Austin, 25 de Octubre de 1835.; Broadside in three columns. 38.7 x 31.5 cm.; Zavala, a distinguished citizen of Mexico and formerly its ambassador to France, had broken with the Santa Anna regime and recently settled in Texas. He had been invited to attend a meeting at Lynch's on the San Jacinto on Sunday, August 8, but being ill with intermittent fever sent instead this written address, dated the day before. In this address he has the honor of being the second important person to recommend the call of a convention to be held by October 15, John A. Wharton being the first. The Zavala October 25 statement calls on all Mexican liberals to join forces with the Texans. Baker and Bordens' account of November 24, 1835 (Binkley, Vol. I, p. 112-113), has a charge for printing 200 copies. The English text of Zavala's Opinion of August 7, but not the supplemental matter of October 25, is given in Johnson and Barker, Vol. I, p. 246-248, and Foote in his Texas and the Texans, Vol. II, p. 72-81, gives a long and appreciative sketch of Zavala, followed at p. 82-83 by the English text of most of the August 7 Opinion. I have not noticed any reprint of the October 25 "Postscriptum." There is an excellent article in the Southwestern Historical Quarterly for January, 1954, Vol. LVII, p. [322]-335, by Raymond Estep entitled "Lorenzo de Zavala and the Texas Revolution," in which this address and Zavala's later statement of October 25, 1835, are discussed.; Locations: Tx.

1156; Leaf of half title, verso blank, leaf of title, verso blank, vii p., verso blank, 374 p. 21 cm.; This narrative of Zavala is included here, though only a few pages directly relate to Texas, because of his prominence in Texas affairs. For his Ensayo Histórico, Paris, 1831, see entry No. 1128.; Raines, p. 224. Sabin 106280.; Locations: CSmH. CtY. DLC. MH. NN. TX. TWS. Also other libraries.
