HISTORICAL AND BIOGRAPHICAL RECORD OF THE CATTLE INDUSTRY AND THE CATTLEMEN OF TEXAS AND THE ADJACENT TERRITORY

by James Cox

Condition: Good+/NONE


1895. Folio. 743pp, illustrated with plates, portraits, index to the historical section, index of biographies, and an index of illustrations. The frontispiece, not issued with all copies, is not present here. Published in St. Louis by Woodward & Tiernan Printing Company - Original gilt-stamped calf with a vignette of a longhorn on the cover.

An Important and Rare Book - Often referred to as One of the "Big Four" cattle books.
Page #247 is separated from the binding but is present as well as one image plate.

A couple of the front pages are taped - and several of the interior pages are as well. I'm not an expert - but they did a pretty good job. Overall I think this copy is in Good condition. The Cover and binding I would rate as Very Good. And the binding is still strong and tight - Overall this is a really nice copy of a fairly rare first edition.

Extended Description and Notes

This is a "Must Have" Book about the Cattle Industry and the Cattlemen of Texas and surrounding territories. This copy is in Excellent condition - except for a couple of minor issues. The Title page and a couple of fly pages apparently had tears and are taped, and one page in the middle of the book is completely separated but is there and intact. The Cover is beautiful - the binding is good and the photo and illustration quality is amazing.
