Description

    Frank E. Simmons. Coryell County History Stories.
    [No publisher stated]: [Oglesby, Texas], [1948]. 8vo. 120 pp. Manila paper wraps with holograph titles: "Coryell County History Stories, / by, / Frank E. Simmons / Unfinished by the Publisher, / Not proofed nor corrected in / any manner by the publisher, / Abounds in typographical errors, / Oglesby, Texas, 1948, / / Only 58 Published". A few short tears to the edges of a few pages, else a sound copy in very good condition. Simmons had a falling out with his publisher prior to completion of the book. Simmons retrieved the 58 unbound copies and bound them himself using paper wraps bearing his handwritten cover title. A unique presentation of a scarce and peculiar Texas printing.

    Frank Elmer Simmons was author of several regional histories as well as a writer for a number of Texas county newspapers.
