DescriptionJohn Henry Brown. Indian Wars and Pioneers of Texas. Austin: L. E. Daniell, . First edition. 4to, 762 pages, in double columns. Indexed. Illustrated with photographs, engraved and painted portraits, and text illustrations. Rebound in blind stamped leather with gilt stamped title on front board; original blind and gilt stamped spine covering kept, but heavily damaged. Marbled page edges. Corners bumped and extremities worn. Moderate wear to boards. Mildly toned, else very good.
"This is Brown's most important book and one of the best works on Texas Indian fighters and early pioneers. The information was gathered over his entire fifty years in Texas, and the text was completed shortly before his death. Although he felt his History of Texas was his major contribution, that work pales beside Indian Wars and Pioneers of Texas for interest, information, and reliability." (Jenkins) TSHA member donation.
