About this Item

Broadside. 8" X 8 3/4". Very good. Mild age toning; single horizontal fold (as issued). Attractive copy, entirely from of edge tears, of this handbill handed out to the public in order to guide them through the livestock pens: "Note each pen is numbered corresponding to the number on this pamphlet." The first pen featured "Lone Star. The world's largest living cow, eight years old and still growing, the second pen "Tiny Tim. The world's smallest prize winning horse," the seventh pen "Texas Longhorn Steer. Only twelve alive. When these die this breed will be extinct," the twenty-ninth pen "Bud. Watch My Throat. I am the only calf in the world with its heart in its neck." Lots of biggest and smallest and strangest. Printed on thin stock and meant for public distribution, its not surprising that few of these ephemeral items survive -- especially in such clean, handsome condition. Bookseller Inventory # 37434
