Robinson, Haley (1967) 82: “A handsome volume profusely illustrated with lively drawings and reproductions of pages from brand books and stock directories. The origin of brands, as with armorial bearings, is lost in time. Yet both are sources of pride that go with honest ownership. The book chronicles a few noted brands: the JA, XIT, the Bells, the Matador V, 101, Cross L, and the JJ. Each is significant in the story it tells.”
