    Wyatt Earp Poster Formerly Owned by Josie Earp! Ex-collection of John Gilchriese, whose handwritten letter of provenance is mounted on the back of the frame. Written to Lenny Martin it reads: "On December 1931 the recently published book, Wyatt Earp Frontier Marshall by Stuart M. Lake was featured in a downtown Los Angeles department store. The item you acquired from me was used to advertise Lake's book. It was given to Mrs. Earp by Lake. Later Mrs. Earp gave it to John H. Flood, Jr. Flood was secretary and confidante of the Earps. Flood gave me the item in 1956."

    In excellent condition, and measuring 17.5" x 23.5 as nicely custom-framed. More recently ex-collection of well-known Tombstone collector Kevin J. Mulkins. A great Earp association piece, and one of the very few.
