      first edition of an important history which relied upon manuscripts no longer extant. "This was the first scholarly history of Texas written after annexation, and remains one of the most important sources on Texas colonization, revolution, and republic. . . . Most copies of this printing were destroyed by fire soon after publication"--Jenkins, Basic Texas Books 224. Howes Y10 ("b"); Larned, Literature of American History 2077. Jenkins calls for 3 maps and Howes for 4; the plan of San Antonio found here after page II:8 may not appear in all copies.
