Title: Twenty-Five Years in the West.
Publisher: Erasmus Manford, Chicago
Publication Date: 1875
Small 8vo. Brown cloth. vii, 375pp. Frontispiece. Good. Spine gilt lettering rubbed and binding a tad soiled, rubbed and mildly edgeworn -- but tight-hinged and fairly attractive. Nice reprint edition of this 1867 account by a Massachusetts minister who decided to go West, and recalls in detail his travels throughout the Midwest and to New Orleans before arriving in Texas. Howes records the first printing, two reprints (1868 and 1870) and three printings of a revised edition (1872, 1873 and 1885), but misses this 1875 edition. NEW HOWES M 249. SABIN 44246.
