    Henry Stuart Foote: Texas and the Texans; or, Advance of the Anglo-Americans to the Southwest; Including a History of Leading Events in Mexico, from the Conquest by Fernando Cortes to the Termination of the Texan Revolution. In Two Volumes. (Philadelphia: Thomas, Cowperthwait & Co., 1841. First edition. Two twelvemo volumes. viii, [13]-314; v [vi] [7]-403 pages. This set with no pages of advertising at the end of Volume I. Publisher's finely-ribbed green cloth with blind-stamped floral decoration and titles stamped in gilt on the spine. Yellow coated endpapers.

    "One of the best histories of Texas for the period covered. Somewhat discursive in its treatment of the subjects, and occasionally high flown in style." - Raines, Bibliography of Texas, page 84. "One of the most influential books on Texas in its time, this work is still of considerable value and interest. It suffers from the intense prejudices of the author and from his too-frequent digressions, but it nevertheless provides material on numerous aspects of Texas history not available elsewhere." - Jenkins, Basic Texas Books.

    Condition: Boards with moderate shelf wear, slightly abraded at the corners; boards with spots of damp; Volume I chipped at the spine ends and the text block is slightly slanted; contemporary owner' signature on the front pastedown of Volume I; both volumes with scattered light to moderate foxing; front hinge Volume II loose but not detached; near very good condition.
