    Six Photographs of Buffalo Bill's Wild West. This grouping is highlighted by two great photographs of Buffalo Bill on horseback. The first is a 4" x 6" shot, circa 1898, of Cody mounted in front of his open tent. This may be Lancer, the "magnificent sorrel," one of the two horses that Buffalo Bill sent to General Nelson Miles for his use during the invasion of Puerto Rico in the Spanish-American War. The second is a 4" x 4.5" dockside photo, circa 1892, of Buffalo Bill on a magnificent bay horse, next to Johnny Baker, with fifteen warbonneted Lakota cast members behind. Filling out this set are four photographic postcards of Wild West action. A great set of images of Cody, with some mounting remnants at corners and on verso where photographs were taken from a scrapbook. One image has some slight silvering, but overall very fine.
