    The Life of Buffalo Bill (Pawnee Bill Film Co., 1912). One Sheet (27" X 42") mounted on linen. One of the most colorful figures of the Old West, William F. "Buffalo Bill" Cody was also a consummate showman. His traveling show, Buffalo Bill's Wild West and Congress of Rough Riders of the World, included as many as 1,200 performers, among them Sitting Bull and Annie Oakley. An important and influential celebrity of the early 20th century, Cody later branched into film, starring as himself in a number of self-promoting pictures dating back as far as 1894. Offered here is a beautiful stone litho poster from one of Cody's three-reelers, featuring a wonderful, idealized image of the legendary frontiersman among a group of Native Americans. This rare, handsome poster has had some expert restoration to the title as well as some filling-in of missing vertical "streaks" in the orange background in the upper third section. It displays beautifully.
