Sam Houston’s History of England
Description                           Estimate: $12,000+          

Signed book: The History of England from the Invasion of Julius Caesar to the Revolution in 1688. NY: Inskeep & Bradford, 1810. Hardcover, 5.5 x 9, 567 pages. Boldly signed on the first free end page in ink, “Sam Houston,” and initialed on the front pastedown, “SH.” Also signed at the top of the first free end page by Tennessee judge John W. Overton, with his bookplate affixed to the front pastedown. Autographic condition: very good, with heavy toning and dampstaining to the signed page (not affecting legibility or boldness of signature). Book condition: VG-/None (rebacked), in a NF custom-made clamshell case. This volume’s previous owner, John William Overton, was one of Tennessee’s most influential residents, serving as a judge on the state’s Supreme Court and as an advisor to President Andrew Jackson. Houston, taking a position as a local prosecutor, met Overton upon his arrival in Nashville in 1818 and the two became close friends. An exceptionally rare format for Houston, made ever more desirable by the bold signature and second set of initials. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
