Huge image of "Buffalo Bill" Cody...



Item # 698564

September 11, 1875

NEW YORK SATURDAY JOURNAL, Sept. 11, 1875 

* Rare Buffalo Bill illustration
* William Frederick Cody
* Soldier, hunter & showman
* American Old Wild West icon


The front page is dominated by a very large image of: "Hon. William F. Cody (Buffalo Bill)", along with the beginning of a story by him titled: "Deadly-Eye, the Unknown Scout, by Buffalo Bill, the Celebrated Scout, Guide, and Hunter-Author." The story takes most of page 2 and is continued in a later issue.
Some crude repairs to the reverse of the Cody image, and archivally rejoined at the spine. Some foxing, fractures at the central fold, but still a very nice display item as I'm not sure we've seen a larger image of Buffalo Bill in any period newspaper. Eight pages.

Item from Catalog 343 (released for June, 2024)
