It has been stated by some historians that Pike wanted to be captured in order to gain information on the Santa Fe Region." -- Blumenthal / Fur Trade Forty #30 ____ "We hail Pike as the first American writer at some length on Texas, though his work be in the form of an official report.as shown in Part III.a general description of Texas and of the manners and customs of the people, with special notice of the missions and high society of San Antonio." --Raines/Texas p.164 ____ Wagner-Camp=9.1___Graff=3290 ___Howes3=P-372 ___ Basic Texas Books=163 ___Streeter/Sale=V-3125 ___ Santa Fe Trail=467. _____ ____ Retains the engraved frontispiece portrait, but lacks all three folding tables and all six maps and charts. ____ Bound in antique full leather. ____ There is an antique library bookplate on the front paste-down and label stain on the spine. ____ A library ownership stamp at the bottom of the title page has been erased, partially affecting the publisher's imprint.____ This is a sad affectation since the same stamp occurs on at least two interior pages and would have not detracted from the title page.____ [kwA_ 1st Ed.
