Book Description North Texas Publishing Company, Paris, Texas, 1948. 1st Edition. Hardbound 8vo (about 9.5 inches tall) 278 pages. Illustrated map endpapers. Description: This copy bears on interesting authorial inscription: ''To Joseph Henry Jackson with best wishes, A W Neville; 17 Nov 1948''. Described as the ''greatest bookman west if the Mississippi'', Jackson was the longtime literary editor of the San Francisco Chronicle and the author of Gold Rush history books such as Bad Company and Anybody's Gold. Panoramic dust jacket art, endpapers and interior illustrations by José Cisneros; book design by Carl Hertzog. The title page is printed in red and black. Following is taken from the jacket blurb: ''Compiled from his daily feature, 'Backwards Glances,' now in its twentieth year in The Paris News, and through additional research, these tales of the white man's first hundred years or so in the Red River Valley are colorful and entertaining narratives. The Red River's crossings at Fulton, Arkansas, and at Fort Towson, in what is now Oklahoma, was a gateway to Texas, but some stayed to leave their imprint upon the history and development of Red River Valley, and it is chiefly of these that the author has chosen to write. Here are stories of Colonel Robert M Joes, early-day Choctaw Indian leader; of Judge David Bryant; of the last execution under Indian tribal laws; of Belle Starr; of Sheriff Max Patton's early-day detective methods; of Parson WJ W P McKenzie, pioneer missionary and school teacher, of Sam Bell Maxey, who was both Confederate general and United States senator, and much more.'' This was limited to 2000 copies. Six-Guns, Number 1604. 50 Great Western Illustrators, Cisneros, Number 130. (Side note to fans of José Cisneros: This is an earlier example of his illustrations; beginning in 1947, Cisneros started doing endpapers and a few illustrations for books designed by Carl Hertzog, including Across Aboriginal America by DeGolyer and El Sal Del Rey by Hawkins). BINDING/CONDITION: brick colored cloth with gilt text; a reaction to the glue used has darkened the endpapers near the spine hinge, and has lightened the cloth (front and rear), otherwise a Very Good book, with a Very Good dust jacket; the jacket is price clipped, and is slightly darkened at the spine.
