Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

A retired historian and archivist who is an important bibliographer in American history as well, Beers has meticulously mapped out the terrain faced by anyone engaged in documentary research on the colonial period of localities that are now in Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, or Missouri. Each of the book's geographical divisions is introduced by an essay about the colonial government; bibliographical chapters on the various types of documents follow. Scholarly apparatus extends to repositories abroad, and helpful information on documents that have been lost or destroyed is also included. This is a fully realized guide to primary source materials rather than just a collection of lists. Beers contributes masterfully to future research, providing description, analysis, evaluation, and context. Though suitably detailed, the text is remarkably concise and fluid. (Index not seen.)-- Sally Linden, Wellesley Coll. Lib., Mass.

French and Spanish Records of Louisiana is an essential research tool for anyone studying colonial Louisiana. This scholarly publication provides a history of the various record types, information about the circumstances relating to their generation, and detailed information about their location today. There is a bibliography of mauscript sources, books, and articles.

My interest is pre-1836 history of Texas. I purchased the book as a research source for my library.
Louisiana is an important piece of Texas history. For example, two of Texas' early heroes considered it home. (l) one of the most overlooked U.S. heroes in mainstream U.S. history is General Bernardo Galvez, the Governor of Spanish Louisiana; and (2) Lt. Colonel Bernardo Gutierrez de Lara used Natchitoches as his base of operations. He organized his Texas Army of the North there and marched to Texas. After winning a series of battles, he became the first President of Texas and wrote the first Texas Declaration of Independence on April 6, 1813.
The book is a "paper trail" review of the rich history of Louisiana.

I have researched both French and Spanish records and find them to be very confusing at times. This guide contained enough historical background which explained very clearly the reasons why the records were either French and Spanish and the locations where those records could be found. This is a reference I will keep for my private library. I have never before found a bibliographic guide that I actually enjoyed reading!!
