About this Item

Cloth, fine copy in dust jacket. Reprint edition, trade issue. Limited to 250 copies. The first edition is exceedingly rare. Adams One-Fifty 138: "with a splendid introduction by my friend Joseph W. Snell of the Kansas Historical Library of Topeka." Guns 2245: "The author devotes a long chapter to accusing Governor Crittenden in strong language of conspiring with Bob And Charlie Ford to murder Jesse. It appears that several months passed before Governor Crittenden heard of this book. When he did, he saw to the destruction of every copy he could lay his hands upon. To make matters worse, the publisher was sued by Mrs. James, and on top of it all Frank James objected to the book because it accused him of moral misconduct." Graff 4196. Howes T355a.
