New York: Harper & Brothers, 1848. New York: Harper & Brothers, 1848. Hardcover. Very good. Second edition (first published 1846). Two volumes in contemporary calf with black spine labels, gilt lettering and edges. pp xxiii, 567; xv, 595, with 2 plates, 4 plans, and 3 maps, including the desirable double-page colored map of Texas by W. Kemble. Moderate wear to boards, internally clean and sound. Field (1081): "The first volume is principally occupied with a relation of the French and Spanish discovery of the territory, and the association of the colonial governments of these nations with the Indians, and their wars with the various tribes inhabiting it. Much the largest portion of Vol. II. is devoted to a narration of the Indian wars of the States bordering the Ohio....The work is probably the best of the numerous class of books on the subject of western history." The map of Texas shows the early Texas counties and Mexican empresario land grants, as well roads, topography, and Indian lands. Another double-page, colored map shows the French, English, and Spanish possessions in 1745. Howes M-722; Sabin 49966.
