Francaviglia , 1995 1st Ed. Texas A&M NF . The shape of Texas is probably the most recognizable in America. It imspires collectors to pick up everything from hoeky to the subline - a diamond necklace, for instance , in the shape of the lone star state. Written in a lively style that engages both thescholar and the general mreader in a discussion of the power of symbol and the meaning of a shared aesthetic. Thr two A&M books are gift quality - no markings, etc. tight and clean, djs great. The p/b pub. by UT is in great condition and is considered one of the best authorities on early Texas.
