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!

Inscription on front free end paper to "Mrs. Edna Perry Deckles and the Texas State Genealogical Society", which Mrs. Deckles founded. The inscription seems obviously from the author but is without signature. Also, laid in is a postcard with photo of first settlement of Hopkins Co. and handwritten notation, presumably by author. Reverse has information about the book and ordering it from author, Gladys St. Clair. 99 pp. Tan cloth boards with bright gilt print on spine. Bottom edge has some staining, perhaps foxing, since page edges have foxing, and there is light foxing on end papers. A little foxing on occasional pages, too. Front end papers have ghosting where news clippings must have lain. Very light edge wear. Dust jacket has a little spotting with slight rubbing, especially on flap folds and rear panel near rear hinge. Front panel has very faint scuff. Rear flap fold has creasing. Now in protective cover.
