Printed & Bound in Texas: Selections from the Powell Library's Hogg Family Collection tells the story of early Texas printers and binders through a selection of books and pamphlets made between the early-19th and early 20th centuries.


The exhibition brings together printed material from the era of the Republic of Texas, when Texas was a sparsely settled territory (1836 to 1845), to elaborately illustrated books from the turn of the 20th century. Printed & Bound in Texas showcases Texas Governor James S. Hogg's personal library collection, which includes pamphlets, law books, popular history, and subscription publications.
