surprise. It is competently done within the limits Miss McVicker has
set for herself, and it is tastefully printed, altogether a very attractive
The bibliography is divided into the usual sections, "A" for Sep-
arately Published Books, "B" for Contributions to Books, and "C" for
Periodical Appearances. In addition Miss McVicker has two other
sections, "D" listing pamphlets and offprints and "E" a chronological
listing of Dobie's Sunday newspaper columns.
The basic lists in the McVicker bibliography are probably complete,
failing those one or two elusive references which no bibliographer can
reasonably expect to avoid. One suspects that the printing histories of
some of the entries in the Contributions to Book section are more
complicated than the author indicates. At least some of the Texas
Folklore Society publications exist in a variety of formats, and the
simple listing given by Miss McVicker in the "B" section is not much
help for the collector.
The descriptions of books in the "A" section are competent, but
here again the author could have provided additional information of
use to both scholar and collector. Date of publication and number of
copies printed are not given.
Although Miss McVicker distinguishes between the first and sub-
sequent printings of Vaquero of the Brush Country by reference to
the presence of the redundant word "river" on the end paper maps,
she makes no mention of the many textual revisions made in the fourth
Southwest Press printing. (These corrections may have been accom-
plished in the third printing, which I have not seen.) Most of these
changes were carried over to the Grosset and Dunlap impression, but
at least one in the index was not. It is interesting to note that one
change marked by Dobie in his copy of the first edition of Vaquero
was not effected until the sixth Little Brown printing from the Grosset
and Dunlap plates. This was the substitution of "Agua Dulce" for
"Oso" in the second line on page 65 of the Southwest Press edition.
The fourth Southwest Press printing also exists in two variant bind-
ings, red and blue.
According to P. L. Turner, the publisher, there were 5,000 copies of
the first issue of Coronado's Children; these were the copies which
omitted the word "clean" in the dedication-i-o,ooo copies of the sec-
ond printing restored the original wording of the dedication: of these
copies, 6,ooo were remaindered. The Literary Guild printing was
