The Complete And Authentic Life Of Jesse James.

by Carl W. Breihan

First edition. 8vo. Author's first book. Cloth, gold stamping on front cover and spine, introduction, illustrated, plates, portraits, appendix, index. Includes in addition to the life and times of Jesse James, all known and verified data about this daring border bandit, his brother Frank James, and his notorious companions, the Younger Brothers. Six Guns 264 disapproves of the book largely due to the mis-spelling of names and for stating that Quantrill had an older brother who was killed in Kansas. On the other hand, Homer Croy, who wrote the introduction, has high praise for the book. Fine in fine price-clipped dust jacket with light wear to foot of spine and bottom edge. SIX GUNS 264.
