        Arizona Kicker Newspaper- Tombstone, Arizona, August 1909; Arizona Kicker Mock-Up; Arizona Kicker Newsstand Placard

      Tombstone, AZ: William Hattich. Very Good. 1909. Newspaper. A set of three newspaper items from the early 20th century from the legendary boomtown, Tombstone, Arizona. Includes the Arizona Kicker newspaper from August, 1909, a planning mock-up and a newsstand placard, both for said newspaper. The "Arizona Kicker" newspaper is an issue from August 1909, first published by Stanley C. Bagg in 1893 as the midweek edition of the "Tombstone Prospector" newspaper. William Hattich took over the "Tombstone Prospector" and with it, the "Arizona Kicker," in 1895. From that point the "Arizona Kicker" was issued irregularly until 1909. Item 1: "Arizona Kicker" newspaper has 8 pages, is 15" tall and has black text and illustrations. Pages are not numbered and the two leaves laid in the newspaper have the same content (duplicates). It is in very good condition with browning to all pages and moderate chipping on edges of first page and light chipping to edges on all other pages. The headline of the August, 1909 issue was "We Have Been Sued," and other stories include "The Kicker Rules," "Musicale in Godless Gulch" and many more. Item 2: A planning mock-up for the "Arizona Kicker," a scarce item. The mock-up is 16 1/2" tall, 34 pages, and is in good condition. The mock-up has some pages with stories (cuts) tipped in while some pages are not complete. The first page has many tears around all edges with an ink stain across the center of the page. All other pages are in good condition with light chipping and browning. The issued associated with this planning mock-up is unknown. The mock-up has the headline story (cut 1) being called "We are sued" with a cartoon that has many similarities to the cartoon found in the August 1909 issue, but the rest of the content doesn't coincide with the 1909 issue. Item 3: Blue newsstand placard with black text, 11" wide by 5" tall. It is in very good condition with moderate chipping and dampstains to right corner. There is no date associated with this placard, but it reads "Arizona Kicker, You want it! Subscriptions taken here." The price for a subscription was "50 cts for 3 months" or "$2 per annum." Please call to request more images. .

After early aspirations of a military life he became an artist, and worked in Ipswich alongside artists such as Robert Burrows, and his brother Thomas (1825-1906). In 1840 Smythe moved to Norwich, and is said to have worked with John Sell Cotman. He was undoubtedly influenced by several Norwich School artists, such as his friend Frederick Ladbrooke. His work attracted commissions from eminent patrons such as the Earl of Cardigan, and the Greene family.
