Description

    Dudley G. Wooten, editor. A Comprehensive History of Texas 1685-1897. Dallas: William G. Scarff, 1898. First edition. Two volumes. 4to, xxiii, 890 pages; vii, 851 pages. Profusely illustrated. Maps. Modern full leather binding with titles and decoration stamped in gilt between five raised bands on the spine. Marbled endpapers. Light shelf wear to leather and the edges of paper have slight marring. Contents bright. A few stains to the preliminary pages and a small dampstain toward the rear of Volume I. Marginal toning in both volumes. Very good.

    John Jenkins, in Basic Texas Books, calls this "one of the most all-inclusive compilations on Texas history through the 19th century." The work begins with a reprint of Yoakum's History of Texas, with additional annotations added. "The remainder is in the form of chronologically arranged articles on Texas history from Austin's colony to 1897. In these are to be found a wealth of essays and memoirs that are unsurpassed and still of immense value and interest."
