    Description

    John Henry Brown. Indian Wars and Pioneers of Texas. Austin: L. E. Daniell, [1896]. First edition. 4to, 762 pages. Printed in double columns. 124 plates. Index. Rebound in brown, blind-stamped leather over boards and marbled endpapers. Titles in gilt on front cover and spine. Spine covering is cracked with exposed binding in places. Bumped corners; heavily shelfworn. Holes in rear free endpaper and flyleaf. Binding is tight; scattered foxing throughout.

    "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)
