    Description

    The Old West: Goliad County Texas Cattle Brand Book. This 7.25" x 11.5" ledger contains 78 pages of "Marks and Brands". The vast majority of the brands were used on cattle, but some were used on horses and hogs. These were entered into the book in the year 1875. It lacks the back cover. The front cover is a marbled board and the whole is bound with string. The last page is detached. The pages are somewhat brittle, but the book is in very good condition and above average for the few cattle brand books we have seen. This ledger is completely hand-written in ink. Given its age or origin, this ledger should generate a lot of collector interest. From the estate of Houston collector Brent Burg.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
