Frontispiece from "A Journey  Through Texas; Saddle-Trip of the Southwestern Frontier." by Frederick Law Olmstead, Dix, Edwards & Co., New York, 1857. This very small, simple black and white relief line engraving  is absolutely stunning. It depicts two travelers with two horses and a pack mule setting up a tent and camp fire on a Texas stream. The image is approximately 3 1/2" wide x 5 1/2" high on a 4 3/4" x 7 1/4" page. Excellent condition.
