    Buffalo Bill Wild West: Three 1890s Buffalo Bill Souvenirs. Among the advertising giveaways produced by Buffalo Bill's Wild West for its 1893 summer in Chicago is this splendid little herald. It opens to 14" x 14" and features eight illustrated panels. The second piece is the witty Duke's Tobacco insert card (1-1/2" x 2-3/4") showing a boy with a lasso and the caption: "Playing Buffalo Bill/'Just see me lassoo the dude.'" The third piece is one of the gems of late 19th-century advertising, also produced for Duke's Cigarettes. Though it has the same dimensions as the tobacco insert card, this is actually a 16-page booklet, "The Life of Buffalo Bill," with finely lithographed covers. And the content is quite readable!
