Doc Holliday

by John Myers Myers

Publication: Jarrolds, nd 1955, London

First U. K. edition. 8vo. Paper over boards, 224 pp., acknowledgments, bibliography, index. This edition has an entirely new dust jacket with a drawing of Holliday on the front cover. A well-written biography that follows the life of John Henry Holliday aka "Doc Holliday" from his birth to his death in Colorado 36 years later. Information for the book was compiled from newspaper accounts, period sources and public records. Six Guns 1586 says "The first, though not the best, book devoted exclusively to this cold-blooded killer." Very good in price-clipped dust jacket.
