    Description

    D.B. CHASE CABINET OF "SIGNOR PESO". Extremely clear and sharp image of "Signor Peso, Chief of Scouts who Captured Geronimo." From the late 1850s through 1886, Geronimo was known for daring exploits and numerous escapes from capture. After evading 5,000 US troops and many units of the Mexican Army for more than a year, Geronimo's small band of 38 men, women, and children was finally cornered and captured in September 1886 in Arizona, with the help of Signor Peso and his Indian scouts. Peso wears a combination of native and non-native clothing, holds a spear and bow and arrow quiver, and wears a feathered buffalo horn bonnet. Affixed to a cardboard backing, this image is in exceptionally good condition. Rare and desirable!

    Provenance: The Chris Kortlander Collection

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
