About this Item

Limited Edition, leather bound, and slip cased, signed by 6 Texas Governors including George W. Bush. At the time of the publication of this book George W. Bush was Governor of Texas. This exclusive all leather edition is signed by the then Governor Bush and his 5 predecessors. Signed in order from top to bottom of page, Ann Richards, Mark White, Dolph Briscoe, Preston Smith, W. P. Clements, and George W. Bush. The signatures are on a translucent limitation page in the front of the book. This special edition was limited to 1000 copies of which this is no. 662. The Austin American Statesman newspaper issued this book shortly after the restoration of the Capitol in 1995. Part of the proceeds from the sale went to the restoration fund. A news article appeared in the Austin American Statesman newspaper on April 20, 1995 notifying the public that these "special limited editions, leather bound and signed by Gov. George Bush and his five predecessors." were available. The books sold out quickly and are now quite rare and sought after since Bush was elected as U. S. President. A copy of this article as it appeared in the Austin American Statesman will be included with the book to validate its source. Illustrated with full color of the completed restoration of the Capitol. 178 pages including index. 9 1/4 in x 12 1/4 in. Dark tan leather with blind stamp of Capitol dome on front. Gold titles on spine. Gilded edges. Book is housed in a matching cloth slip case with a gold imprint of the Capitol Dome. Illustrations and text are clean - no writing. Slip case and Book are in Fine condition.; 9 1/4 in. x 12 1/4 in. Bookseller Inventory # 122125

Store Description

Quinn & Davis are Booksellers of exceptional used,out of print,scarce, rare and notable First Edition books. We are an internet bookstore with our inventory listed on the Advanced Book Exchange. We exhibit and sell at book fairs and occasionally issue printed catalogs. We concentrate on notable and scholarly non-fiction books about Texas, The Early Western Movement in America, Early American History, Military History, Political History and Politics, Law and Legal History, Biographies, and The Sciences. We are currently expanding our inventory of collectible children's books. We strive to keep our data bases current so that when you inquire about or order a listed book we will have it. One of our most important considerations is the book's condition. We use the following grading system for our books. VERY FINE. (VF). The very highest grade that can be assigned to any book. A pristine copy with no defects. Has that new book 'creak' when opened. FINE. (F). This grade lacks the crispness and pristine quality of a Very Fine book. Fine allows for only a few noted defects, such as minor shelf wear or price clipping. NEAR FINE. (NF). A sub grade of Fine and is only a very small step down from Fine. All defects will be noted and described. VERY GOOD +. (VG+). A small step up from Very Good and not quite as acceptable as Near Fine. VERY GOOD. (VG). A book that is attractive, whole and has had care. A very acceptable, collectible condition. All defects such as wear and soiling are noted in the description. We list all defects and then grade the overall condition of the book. You must be 100% satisfied with the condition of the book or you may return it for a full refund.
