Written by Col. Edward Stiff, the book acts as a biography of Col. Stiff, as well as a history of Texas. There are a few surprises inside, like this map.

Col. Stiff had very strong opinions about critics.

Also, this book plate from Yale is a bit unusual. I hope the book was obtained in an honest way.
