    Tales of the Outlaw Harry Tracy

    Lloyd Jones. Life and Adventures of Harry Tracy "The Modern Dick Turpin". Chicago: Jewett & Lindrooth, 1902. First edition. Octavo. [1-2], 3-7, [8 blank], 9-219, [1 blank], [4] index pages. (The table of contents is mislabeled "Index" and placed at the back of the book. Portrait of Harry Tracy used as frontispiece. Publisher's original yellow cloth lettered in black and white. Boards with moderate shelf wear at the corners and spine ends; boards with scattered soiling; rear board with small ink stain near the top edge; contents generally clean. A very good copy of this rare work.

    "The author says that Bat Masterson was "a celebrated gambler, confidence man and crook." There is quite a bit of false information about Soapy Smith, with whom he claims Harry spent a lot of time, even going to Alaska with him...He has Soapy killed in a fight which took place in a saloon and in which sixty-six men were killed and eighteen wounded. None of this is true." (Adams).
