Early Settlers and Indian Fighters of Southwest Texas

Austin, TX: Self-published, 1900. 1st. Cloth. Uncommon, turn-of-the-century study of 19th century "life on the border, especially in Southwest Texas". Comprehensive and sweeping, with particular focus on the settlers and Indian fighters of the region. Skillfully re-bound (and with new endsheets) in a beige cloth, with bright gilt-lettering at the spine. Light soiling to the panels and former owner bookplate at the front pastedown. Apparently de-accessioned from the Chicago Historical Society, with their small, subtle blindstamp at the title page and unobtrusive numbering on the "Preface" page. Tight, solid and VG. Thick octavo, 844 pgs., including a number of illustrated plates. Also includes an unprinted, custom-made linen dustjacket with matching cloth slipcase. Very impressive example of early Texas history. (Howes-797). Collectible; Very Good. Item #10508

Price: $1,250.00
