BELL, JAMES G. AND J. EVETTS HALEY (EDITED BY)
A LOG OF THE TEXAS-CALIFORNIA CATTLE TRAIL, 1854.
Reprinted from the Southwestern Historical Quarterly, 1932., [Austin]. First book edition of only 100 copies. 8vo. Inscribed by Haley on the title page, "To a member of the 'gun wad' club, from J. Evetts Haley." Original blue printed wrappers, 78 [1] pp., introduction, footnotes, tables, index. This rare book published in an edition of 100 copies, has long been sought by cattle and Haley collectors. Herd 235 says "Scarce." This rare book, one of Haley's earliest titles, contains a fine introduction by Haley, including an account of his efforts to locate the diaries that make up this book. The existence of a major cattle trail from California to Texas and several major drives over this trail seven years before the Civil War is little known and this work is a major source on the subject. Minor wear to the extended edges of the front and rear covers, else a near fine, clean copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
Bookseller: BUCKINGHAM BOOKS, ABAA, ILAB, IOBA [GREENCASTLE, PA, U.S.A.]
