Book Description Texas State Historical Association, 1947. Hardcover. Condition: Good. No Jacket. Cisneros, Jose (illustrator). 1st Edition. EL SAL DEL REY, written by Walace Hawkins, illustrated by Jose Cisneros, beautifully designed and printed by Carl Hertzog at El Paso, hardcover, probable first edition, 1947. BOOK CONDITION: good. The text block is in near fine condition with no tears or dog ears and minor pencil marks on three pages. There is no bookplate nor signature of the previous owner. The pages and endpapers are age-tanned. Not a library book nor remainder. Tight binding. The white cloth boards are in good condition (some spotting and smudging on covers and edges, shelf rubbing). The gilt lettering on the spine is unfaded, but there is a tiny tear at the top from bumping. 9 x 6 , 68 pages, 12 ounces XX [From Hawkins? preface] Our constitution makers of 1866, though almost exclusively concerned with restoration of state government in Texas, took time out to relinquish all minerals to landowners. This was an epochal decision?a choice between two ancient and rival theories of law and government. As a result the American or common law conception of ownership of land as including all minerals therein took the place of the superseded Spanish or Mexican mining system, which treated minerals as divorced from land and as property of the king. incapable of private ownership. Judge Nelson Phillips, writing in 1912, when the development of Texas mineral resources was still in a state of infancy, described the role played by the Salt Lake called El Sal del Rey [Salt of the King] in the 1866 constitutional enactment. In fact the amendment was so closely identified with the Lake that the clerk in confusion endorsed thereon the title 'El Sal del Rey/Fixing title to.' My effort here is focused not only on this but other experiences, events, and controversies of a political, legislative, and judicial nature during some 40 years or more which induced Texas people to make such a decisive and radical change in their mineral jurisprudence.
