349. [BIBLIOGRAPHY & REFERENCE: SANTA FE TRAIL]. Lot of 3 titles, including the following:

CARROLL, H. Bailey. The Texan Santa Fe Trail. Canyon: Panhandle-Plains Historical Soc., 1951. [12] 201 pp. illustrations, maps, endpaper maps. 8vo, original heavy linen, title on spine. In publisher’s slipcase with pictorial label. Fine.
         First edition. Dobie, p. 56. Rittenhouse 103. Pingenot: Sent by the Republic of Texas to annex New Mexico, the expedition became lost on the Staked Plains, captured by the New Mexicans and marched as prisoners to Mexico City.

RITTENHOUSE, Jack D. The Santa Fe Trail. A Historical Bibliography. Albuquerque: University of New Mexico Press, [1971]. [6] 271 pp. 8vo, green cloth. Very fine in d.j. Signed.
         First edition.

SAUNDERS, Lyle. A Guide to Materials Bearing on Cultural Relations in New Mexico. Albuquerque: University of New Mexico Press, 1944. xvi [2] 528 pp. 8vo, cloth. Very fine in d.j.
         First edition. Pingenot note laid in: Not new but so elusive it may be new to many. Should have been named simply "A New Mexico Bibliography." It lists, usually with annotations, 5,335 books, articles, and theses. Has subject index and author index. In research on anything New Mexican before 1944, I always start my search in Saunders. Especially good on Indians, Spanish Americans, any social or ethnic aspects, and anthropology. Long out-of-print.
