SIGNED EDITION. The spine ends and corners of the book cover have a bit of very light bumping and rubbing. The front spine joint has some beginning biopredation (bug nibblings -- in this case, with some beginning loss of color to the cloth -- and NO damage to the stability of the book itself. Mostly it looks like the cloth was colored unevenly). The text pages are clean and bright. Endpapers are fully illustrated with maps. This copy has been signed by the author, with a short inscription, on the half title page. The spine ends and corners of the dust jacket have a bit of very light bumping and rubbing. There is some light, but generalized toning to the dust jacket, especially the edges. There is some beginning biopredation to the front spine joint of the dust jacket (matching the book cover) and the bottom front corner of the dust jacket has some edge wear, nicking and a very small chip missing. There is some light rubbing to the bottom front spine end of the dust jacket and a small chip missing to the top spine end of the dust jacket as well. Overall, a nice clean, bright copy with wear that sounds worse than it looks. "Louis Juchereaus de St. Denis strode through the stormy world of colonial America with the gusto of a man in seven-league boots. His courage won men's admiration and his looks won women's hearts. His name was known from Quebec to Mobile to Mexico City. Shortly after he arrived in Mobile, and saw his plans crushed by a perfidious woman, he took a secret mission to learn how the Spaniards planned to use the vast area they held in what is now Texas." "Paul Iselin Wellman (October 15, 1895 September 17, 1966) was an American journalist, popular history and novel writer, and screenwriter, known for his books of the Wild West: Kansas, Oklahoma, Great Plains. Hollywood movies Cheyenne, The Walls of Jericho, Jubal, Apache, The Comancheros, and The Iron Mistress are based on Wellman novels. Wellman's brother, Manly Wade Wellman, was also a well published author." ; Signed by Author
