1 Seele, Hermann (Translation, Introduction, and Notes By Theodore Gish) Texas Fahrten (Travels In Texas)
Austin, Texas Nortex Press 1985 First Edition SIGNED
As New in an As New dustjacket. Glazed and marbled maroon boards. The spine is gilt-stamped. 112pps., with numerous illustrations and a full-color frontispiece of the author, Seele, in 1851. A flawless, collector's-quality copy: clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. Absolutely no reading wear and no previous ownership markings. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, has very light touches of crinkling at the extremities; no chips, soiling, or tears. SIGNED and inscribed by Gish on the ffep.

Intellectually and spiritually, Texas Germans have influenced the political, the educational and the religious development of Texas in distinctive ways. There is also an abundant linguistic record. In addition to the spoken language, Texanisch-Deutsch, there is the record of the written language, not only that brought over from Germany, but the 'new' record, described in the German language, of being an immigrant, or being a pioneer and, eventually, of being a citizen of Texas and of the United States..."
