Very rare Colorado title, plus the death of Jesse James...



Item # 615217

April 8, 1882

THE DURANGO RECORD, Colorado, April 8, 1882 

* Very rare title
* Old West mining town
* Outlaw Jesse James killed


A very rare title as Gregory (Union List of American Newspapers) notes that save for a few issues in the Chicago Public Library no issues of this title are recorded in any American institution.
The front page has a very notable article with column heads: "JESSE JAMES KILLED" "Robert Ford, His Cousin by Marriage, Kills Him in Cold Blood" "All for the Sake of the Glory and the Reward" with the text providing various details (see). Rubbing across the central fold causing some perforating holes affecting a subhead in this article.
Eight pages, archivally rejoined at the spine, some scattered foxing, generally good.
