The Southwestern Historical Quarterly, Volume 39, July 1935 - April, 1936

Southwestern Historical Quarterly

concluded by three appendices contributed by Prof. Stetson Cohn,
Dr. Alfred Hasbrouck, and Prof. Raul D'Eca.
The division which surveys modern Argentina was contributed
by Prof. Rippy, that dealing with Brazil by Prof. P. A. Martin,
and that relating to Chile by Prof. I. J. Cox. These surveys are
not as satisfactory as the corresponding longer ones in such well-
known histories as Levene's Lecciones de Hlistoria Argentina,
Ribero's Historia do Brazil, and Galdames' Estudio de la Historia
de Chile. However, the surveys by Profs. Rippy, Martin and Cox
come nearer being satisfactory substitutes for the respective sur-
veys by Sefiores Levene, Ribero and Galdames than anything at
present available in English. In fact, the works of the above-
mentioned Latin-American historians have been relied upon in
great measures by Professors Rippy, Martin, and Cox,-a fact for
which no apology is in order.

Original Narratives of Early Texas History and Adventure. (The
Steck Company, Austin, Texas.)
Some of the most interesting and valuable books in the field of
Texas history and adventure have long been out of print and,
because of their high cost, unavailable to many who would enjoy
them and profit most by owning them. The Steck Company of
Austin, Texas, is undertaking to reproduce, in facsimile, some of
the rarest Texas items and place them within the financial reach
of a wider range of readers. In doing so, it is rendering a real
service to all students and prospective students of Texas and
Southwestern history.
The books in this series of reproductions fall, roughly, into
three groups-History, Biography (including reminiscences), and
Adventure. Naturally, there is a good deal of overlapping in
such a classification.
In the History group are Holley's Texas (1836), Newell's His-
tory of the Revolution in Texas (1838), Foote's Texas and Texans
(1841), and Yoakum's History of Texas (1855).
Biography and Reminiscence includes W. B. DeWeese's Letters
from an Early Settler of Texas (1853), John J. Linn's Remin-
iscences of Fifty Years in Texas (1883), John Henry Brown's
