Description

Illustrated, Publishers' Original Binding, Uncommon

The 128th thousand of this work, published in the year of Jesse James's murder, at the hands of American outlaw Robert Ford.

With two works bound in one, as called for: the first half of the work is dedicated to brothers Jesse and Frank James, and the second part - the work of Augustus C. Appler - discusses Cole, Jim, John and Bob Younger.

Illustrated with ten plates to part one. Lacking the frontispiece.

Part two is illustrated with a frontispiece and six plates, and is collated, complete.

A thrilling contemporary examination of this infamous gang of American outlaws, based in Missouri. They are remembered for an unsuccessful attempt to rob the Northfield First National Bank, and are suspected of having robbed banks, trains, and stagecoaches in at least eleven states.

An uncommon work.
