Other works by GEORGE G. THOMPSON

Publication: Kansas State Printing Plant, 1943, Topeka

First edition. 8vo. Fort Hays Kansas State College Studies, General series, Number 6, Language and Literature Series No. 1, F. B. Streeter, Editor. Light blue printed wrappers, 55 pp., introduction, appendix, notes and references, bibliography. Adams 150 #135 says, "Scarce." "This excellent little treatise is reliable and well annotated. The author claims that his account of Bat's killing of Sergeant King, an entirely different version from the one by Stuart Lake, was told him by Bat's son. Most of the information is taken from contemporary newspaper reports and personal interviews with old-timers and Masterson's son." Spine and the edges lightly sunned, else a fine copy of an elusive title.
