A.C. Greene's 50+ Best Books on Texas

A. C. Green has left us, but his love of Texas, its various parts, its history and literature lives through his bright and lively work. Greene, in his literate and plainspoken way, gave us the great gift of a guide to Texas literature in 1982, "The 50 Best Books on Texas" and in the 1998 revised version, The 50+ Best Books on Texas". We at Texas Star Books try to keep copies from Greene's list on hand. Some are easier to find than others, so we may not have them all. To view his picks, click on the book title. Look for the book, itself in our inventory, too!

1 Bill Mauldin Up Front
Cleveland World Publishing 1945 First Edition Third Printing Decorative Cloth Good No Jacket 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall 
Cartoonist Bill Mauldin, the GI's friend, created Willie and Joe and a few enemies among the command. Patton even asked him to knock it off, but Mauldin kept taking the dogfoot's side. This WWII classic opens to signatures at half-title page and is beginning to split. It is intact, however, and will make a good reading copy. Brown boards have a dime-sized light spot on front board, and slight bumping on corners and spine ends. Pages are tanned. 
Price: 12.00 USD
