First edition. Cloth, 224pp., 6 plates. Foreword by Theodore Roosevelt. Notes and citations, bibliography, index. Map on endpapers. A thoroughly researched history of the Texas Navy and its activities during the period of the Republic of Texas in the 1830's. Many clashes with the Mexican Navy during Texas' war for independence. A very scarce work. Fine in the elusive dust jacket with a few short closed tears to the top edges and modest wear to the spine ends and corners. Signed by the author.
