Description

    [Anonymous]. Jesse James: The Life and Daring Adventures of This Bold Highwayman and Bank Robber and His No Less Celebrated Brother, Frank James. Together With the Thrilling Exploits of the Younger Boys Written by ****** (One Who Dare Not Now Disclose His Identity.) The Only Book Containing the Romantic Life of Jesse James and His Pretty Wife Who Clung to Him to the Last! Philadelphia: Barclay & Co., 1883. Second edition (first published the preceding year). 8vo. [2], 19-96pp. With eight full-page wood engravings captioned in English and German. Printed pictorial wraps. Covers fragile, contents sound with some scattered light foxing, else a very good copy, considering the fragility of pulps of this vintage.

    All early editions of this anonymous work are scarce. Adams notes that neither the portrait alleged to be Jesse James on the front wrapper, nor that of his father on the rear wrapper, is correct.

    References: Howes J47. Six-Guns 1148.
