Description

    Eugene Cunningham. Famous in the West. El Paso: Hicks-Hayward Co., 1926. First edition. 12mo. 25 pp. Illustrations. Pictorial wraps. Bookplate to inside of front wrap. Near fine.

    Ramon Adams, in his Six-Guns and Saddle Leather, considers this item to be exceedingly rare. "This rare little pamphlet was originally published as an advertisement to be distributed by a firm dealing in cowboy-style clothes. It is said to have been published in an edition of sixty thousand copies, but when the dealer discovered how much postage it would take to distribute them, he gave up the idea and destroyed most of the copies." Cunningham provides short chapters on five lawman and outlaws of the Southwest - such as "Jim" Gillett, Dallas Stoudemire, "Billy the Kid," John Wesley Hardin, and Tom Threepersons.
