by Freeman, George D.
Caldwell, Ks, 1890. 405pp. plus frontispiece portrait and three plates. Original printed boards and cloth spine. Wear to corners and edges, boards rubbed and worn, spine slightly frayed at extremities. Text toned, but otherwise clean. A very good copy of a fragile book. An important history of one of the primary Kansas cattle towns, where Texas trail drivers delivered longhorns driven up the trail to the railroad lines which would take them to Chicago stockyards. This is the rare first edition, first issue, with "Talbot" spelled incorrectly on the titlepage as "Talbert". Adams describes this edition as "exceedingly rare...the first edition is so scarce that some collectors think the 1892 edition the only one published." Includes much material on the Talbot raid on Caldwell and the bank robbers, Henry Brown and Ben Wheeler. "An extremely rare history of Caldwell during this vital period" - SIX SCORE.
