Description

    Dudley G. Wooten, editor. A Comprehensive History of Texas 1685-1897. Dallas: William G. Scarff, 1898. First edition. Two 4to volumes. xxiii, 890; vii, 851 pp. 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. Contents bright. A few stains to the preliminary and terminal pages of volume one; old tape repairs to the title page and table of contents pages of volume two. 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."
