Stated First Edition. Light shelf wear and bumping. A newspaper article from 1945 is laid in at pages 160-161 causing associated browning of those two pages. The rear endpaper features the book shop label from Dudley R. Dobie, San Marcos bookseller and first cousin of J. Frank Dobie. The dust jacket has a few minor edge nicks and a tiny amount of edge wear. Overall, a very nice association copy inscribed and signed by Dobie on the front free endpaper: "Dear Howard Hampton- As I told Mrs. Howard, I'm still expecting a book from you- Good wishes to you both- Frank Dobie." In Dobie's "A Vaquero of the Brush Country," he included paragraphs from a Howard Hampton article previously published in the Dallas Morning News (The Palmy Days of a Texas Cowpuncher, January 30, 1927). A solid copy of Dobie's reminiscence of his time in England as visiting American lecturer to Cambridge University from 1943-1944, during World War II.
