1991 · Austin
Masterful account of the history of the plundering of Texas archives in the period from 1950 to 1980 combined with the related story of the fabrication, beginning in the 1960s, of fake copies of important, early, printed Texas historical documents. Taylor names those implicated and tells of how the fakery was slowly discovered.
=> A must read. Publisher's quarter cloth, paper sides with a reproduction of the Texas Declaration of Independence; front cover darkened along edges and page-tops darkened also, with endpapers and a good many margins slightly to moderately affected; a good "working" copy. (Inventory #: 35356)
