Uncommonly lengthy on the death of Jesse James...
Item # 654268

NEW YORK TIMES, April 5, 1882
* Outlaw Jesse James killed
Page 5 has an uncommonly lengthy account--extremely detailed--on the death of Jesse James, headed: "The Murdered Outlaw" "The State Officers Previously Arranging For The Killers" "Shot Down With A Rifle Which He Gave to His Slayer---Threats of His Friends---Gov. Crittenden's Arrangement with Robert Ford". This account takes over a full column, and is followed by yet another, related report: "An Old Accomplice's Comment" "An Interview With Cole Younger, in Jail in Minnesota" (see).
Complete in 8 pages, 4 small binding holes in the 1st column affect a total of 13 words in the pg. 5 Jesse James article. Loose at the spine, browned at the margins and somewhat fragile. Must be handled carefully.
A terrific account on the death of Jesse James.
