    Description

    William F. "Buffalo Bill" Cody: Signed and Inscribed Biography. This British edition of Helen Cody Wetmore's Last of the Great Scouts was published in 1901 by Methuen of London. The book is in good condition with some humidity damage (bubbling of the cloth covers, light foxing on the end papers), and with library tape reinforcement of the inside hinges. What makes this one special is the inscription and double signature in Buffalo Bill's strong hand: "With the Compliments/ of the subject./ W. F. Cody/ "Buffalo Bill"/ to Miss L. Mackintosh/ March 7th 1903." Cody was in London with the Wild West, and his social calendar shows him attending a reception and dinner in his honor. The privileged Miss Mackintosh had the foresight to bring her copy of the book along with her. This lot is from the collection of Bess Edwards, grand-niece of Annie Oakley, and will be accompanied by a signed letter from her authenticating this item as described.
