    Description

    Harley True Burton. A History of the J A Ranch. A Thesis, Presented to the Faculty of the Graduate School of the University of Texas in Partial Fulfillment of the Requirements For the Degree of Master of Arts, June 1927. Austin: Press of Von Boeckmann-Jones Company, 1928. First edition. 8vo. 147 pages. Four photographic plates including a portrait of Charles Goodnight used as the frontispiece. Original red cloth over boards with titles stamped in gilt on the front board and spine.

    The J A ranch was the oldest ranch in the Texas Panhandle, founded by Charles Goodnight and John Adair. Burton does an admirable job of chronicling the ranch's history through the early part of the 20th Century. Though Burton's book has been reprinted, first editions rarely find their way to market.

    Condition: Light soiling on front board boards with some wear at spine ends. Minimal sunning on spine, light toning overall. Contents sound and tight. Front endpaper stamped with "From The Library of Sarah & Joe Sinclair". Small note in pencil made on front endpaper. Generally, a very good copy.

    References: Adams Herd 382; Howes B1030aa.
