The Government Documents Department of the University of North Texas (UNT) Libraries brings to the Web the first ten volumes of Gammel's The Laws of Texas. Published over one hundred years ago (1822-1897), The Laws compile documents from the time of colonization through statehood, including congressional and legislative sessions, constitutions, selected journals of the constitutional conventions, and early colonization laws. The volumes have never been reprinted, despite their importance to researchers, so Web access will be welcomed by legal historians and historians of Texas. All of the pages are available in .pdf format. Users can browse The Laws by volume or perform a keyword search; happily the UNT Libraries search engine is configured to search the content of .pdf files.
