A rare promotional pamphlet touting available property in several Texas counties for emigrants and speculators "desiring homes and profitable investments." Henry H. Hannan was an Ohio land agent who specialized in Texas real property in the second half of the 19th century. Here, Hannan claims to have personally examined each of the thirty tracts of land offered in Kauffman, Dallas, Ellis, Denton, Wise, Jack, Frio, Taylor, Lynn, and Lubbock counties, and discusses their water rights, timber rights, improvements, and other details. He offers "special attention" to "colonist locations" and also mentions that he has additional tracts of "railroad and other lands, representing over 100 counties in Texas, Arkansas and Missouri." Printed by the Gallipolis BULLETIN in Ohio, a long-running but now defunct newspaper located about twenty miles from Hannan's home base in Swan Creek. OCLC reports just three institutional copies, at Yale, SMU, and the University of Texas at Arlington. OCLC 775872981.
