First edition in English of ONE OF THE FIRST FOUR NOVELS ABOUT TEXAS, regarded by Streeter as Seatsfield's masterpiece.

"The main scene for this narrative is laid in Texas at the time of the Texas revolution, with an account of the Battle of San Jacinto and quite long references to [...] the Galveston Bay and Texas Land Company. [...] Follows almost literally the text of 'A Visit to Texas' (New York, 1834)." -- Streeter 1396A. The original German language edition was published in Zurich three years earlier. See Streeter 1111 for more information on this German author.
