Total: 8 folded maps, 6 plates, including frontispiece. 4to (24.2 x 18 cm), original white printed paper wrappers in original glassine (Vol. 2 glassine tattered and fragmentary). Mostly unopened. Ex-library with accession markings on Vol. 1 title page verso and two ink stamps of the library of Universidad Nacional de México. Very fine set.

First edition, limited edition (one of 2,000). Basic Texas Books 1: “Presents the history of Texas as a Spanish province and state from the Mexican viewpoint.” Griffin 2458 & 4903: “Provides a rich, solid history...a major work [that] will long be considered a standard work of reference.” Howes R382. Palau 7433. Steck, Borderlands, p. 53: “A splendid, authoritative study, heavily documented, with a rich bibliography.”

Given the importance and enduring quality of these volumes, it seems remarkable that they have never been translated into English.
