    Description

    Carlos E. Castañeda. Our Catholic Heritage in Texas 1519-1936. Austin: Von Boeckmann-Jones, 1936-1958. First editions. The first six volumes are each inscribed by Castañeda to a friend. Seven 8vo volumes total. Maps, illustrations, indices. The final volume includes supplemental material up to 1950. Original decorated blue cloth over boards. Blind-stamped lettering and designs to boards and spines. Minor shelf wear. Some dampstaining to the lower portion of Volume I. Very good.

    "Castañeda gives us the first detailed account of literally dozens of expeditions and settlements in Texas. [...] He opens a world of entirely new history for the Big Bend region and for South Texas, and provides by far the most complete account of the missions in the San Antonio-Goliad region and in East Texas" (Jenkins, Basic Texas Books).

    Reference: Basic Texas Books 27.
