The Slave narratives of Texas by Ronnie C Tyler( Book )

8 editions published between 1871 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 516 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Many defenders of slavery have maintained that the slaves in Texas were well-treated and happy, but as a former slave remarked, 'isn't he who has stood and looked on, that can tell you what slavery is—'tis he who has endured' Here are the tales of those who have endured—a collection of the voices of the ex- slaves themselves, recalling what their lives were like under slavery. Over one hundred former slaves describe their slavemasters, their work, runaway slaves, their recollections of the Civil War and, finally, the coming of freedom. The narratives were collected by WPA interviewers in the late 1930s and subsequently edited by Ron Tyler and Lawrence R. Murphy. The Slave Narratives of Texas is a highly informative and readable book that provides a valuable history of the institution of slavery in Texas. It is also a profoundly moving text which yields great insight into the full impact of slavery upon human lives"--Publisher

Audubon's great national work : the royal octavo edition of Birds of America by Ronnie C Tyler( Book )

8 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"John James Audubon's boundless enthusiasm for the natural wonders of North America found magnificent expression in The Birds of America, perhaps the most beautiful bird book ever produced. Virtually all of the scholarly attention paid to Audubon has been devoted to the double elephant folio of The Birds, published in Great Britain between 1827 and 1838. But, as Ron Tyler reveals in this ground-breaking study, even before the larger work was completed, Audubon was contemplating a "petit edition," which would bring his birds to a much larger - and more profitable - audience. This was the royal octavo edition, one of the handsomest publications created in America during the first half of the nineteenth century. Published in seven volumes measuring approximately 8 by 11 inches (as opposed to the double elephant folio's 39 1/2 by 26 1/2 inches), it was a truly national work. It went through nine editions during the nineteenth century and sold across the country, providing financial support for Audubon's family for years after his death. Audubon himself called it his "salvator.""--BOOK JACKET. "Because the royal octavo edition is a work of art in its own right and the source of much of Audubon's reputation and popularity, Ron Tyler offers an engrossing narrative of the "little work's" conception, production, distribution, and reception. He mines a rich store of hitherto neglected sources, including Audubon family account books, newly discovered original drawings for the octavo edition, numerous proofs for the plates, sales records, and personal correspondence, for a fresh look at this important aspect of Audubon's career."--BOOK JACKET. "This study carefully reconstructs the processes that produced the most popular natural history book of the nineteenth century. Tyler describes the changes that Audubon made for his "petit edition," including the addition of seventeen species; explains the printing methods used to produce the plates; discusses, for the first time, the surprising differences between the plates in the double elephant folio and in the royal octavo and subsequent octavo editions; and outlines the way the Audubon family sold and distributed such a large and complex work. From these explorations, Audubon emerges not only as a woodsman artist, but also as a careful and persistent businessman of proven entrepreneurial ability."--BOOK JACKET. "Tyler's final chapter puts Audubon's art, and the prodigious accomplishment of its publication in both the large and small formats, in the larger context of American Romanticism. Audubon was successful largely because of his expressive and colorful paintings, which embodied America's Romantic soul at a time when it was possible to reach a large audience. This new assessment of Audubon as an artist places the great ornithologist in the aesthetic context he deserves as one of America's most important Romantic painters."--BOOK JACKET

We pointed them north : recollections of a cowpuncher by E. C Abbott( Book )

3 editions published between 1955 and 1991 in English and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

E.C. Abbott was a cowboy in the great days of the 1870s and 1880s. He came up the trail to Montana from Texas with the long-horned herds that were to stock the northern ranges; he punched cows in Montana when there wasn't a fence in the territory; and he married a daughter of Granville Stuart, the famous early-day stockman and Montana pioneer. For more than fifty years he was known to cowmen from Texas to Alberta as "Teddy Blue." This is his story, as told to Helena Huntington Smith, who says that the book is "all Teddy Blue. My part was to keep out of the way and not mess it up by being literary...Because the cowboy flourished in the middle of the Vicotian age, which is certainly a funny paradox, no realistic picture of him was ever drawn in his own day. Here is a self-portrait by a cowboy which is full and honest." And Teddy Blue himself says, "Other old-timers have told all about stampedes and swimming rivers and what a terrible time we had, but they never put in any of the fun, and fun was at least half of it." So here it is--the cowboy classic, with the "terrible" times and the "fun" which have entertained readers everywhere -- Book jacket
