Contemporary quarter calf binding with marbled boards and gilt title on spine. Gently toned throughout, rubbed spine and worn extremities; otherwise near fine. Housed in a custom clamshell case, with five raised bands stamped in gilt. Very scarce title. From the collection of Darrel Brown.

    Reference: Streeter, Texas 1454: "Ehrenberg, then a youthful German private, was a member of one of the three companies of the New Orleans Greys in the campaign against Bexar in November and December, 1835, and later was one of the few of Fannin's soldiers who escaped the massacre. His account of his services is one of the valuable sources for part of the military phase of the Texas Revolution."

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
