    Wm. Brady: Glimpses of Texas: Its Divisions, Resources, Development and Prospects. (Houston, Texas: 1871). With folding colored map of Texas by G. W. & C. B. Colton (Map of Texas to Accompany "Brady's Glimpses of Texas." E. H. Cushing, Houston, Texas, 1871, 15" x 12.5"). Map has been removed from text and framed to an overall size of 25.5" x 21.5". Map of Texas includes insets of "Plan of the Environs of Houston" and a general map of U.S. and Mexico. Map appears in very good condition with good tone. Rough edge at top left margin where it has been removed from book, causing a small one inch tear barely touching imprint. Condition of book is good with evidence of restoration to cloth binding. Interior Corners are gently bumped, and gild title 'remains intact. Front and rear hinges are noticeably cracked, with evidence of toning resulting from original inclusion of map. Front paste down has remnants of original bookseller's price list. Interior text is fine, printed errata slip pasted on inside wrap. The guide was issued both with and without the map; copies with the map are far scarcer.

    Howes B714. Rader 460. Graff 387: "Devoted to the enticement of immigrants."
