    Buffalo Bill Wild West: Rough Rider Magazines. Two Wild West tabloids. In some seasons, the Courier Company of Buffalo, N.Y., published these 16-page annuals for Buffalo Bill's Wild West, lavishly illustrated and highly descriptive of the show and the stories it was aiming to depict in the arena. They were distributed both as souvenirs and as marketing pieces -- "couriers." These are two of the best in very good condition, intact with light stains and no tears. The 1899 edition pictures General Sheridan with his favorite scout, Buffalo Bill, and favorite cavalry officer, George Armstrong Custer. The 1902 edition pulled out the stops. Besides the front cover showing Cody in the poster version of his famous Rosa Bonheur portrait, the back is a poster-quality four-color lithograph showing "Buffalo Bill reviewing the Rough Riders of the World."
