THE OUTLAW BROTHERS, FRANK AND JESSE JAMES. LIVES AND ADVENTURES OF THE SCOURGES OF THE PLAINS
Published by Richard K. Fox, Proprietor Police Gazette, [1881]., 1881. 8vo. Pictorial yellow and black wrappers, [5], 67 pp. plus 7 pages of advertisements, frontispiece. Top of front panel says "Fifth Edition" and shows a picture of a hanged man, inside front cover and inside rear and back cover are advertisements. This is a rare item and we have only seen two other copies in the past years that state "Second Edition" at the top of the front cover. It has been said that this booklet was printed in a small quantity and as they sold and more were needed the publisher printed them as if sales were so good that another edition was needed. We don't know what actually was the reasoning, but this copy matches identically with all bibliographical sources. Six Guns 542 says "Rare." "Another example of the Police Gazette's historically worthless outlaw series, which have now become rare collector's items." Light wear to the spine ends, and moderate wear to the edges, else a very good copy housed in a quarter leather and cloth clamshell case with raised bands on the spine and titles stamped in gold gilt on the spine.
