New York Dick"s Publishing House (1893) 6 ¾“ x 5“, original pictorial pink wrappers. [16 pp.] Woodcut portrait on front wrapper. First Edition of this pamphlet that seems to have been entirely unknown until a small cache, along with additional Lone Star Harry material, surfaced a dozen or so years ago. Harry, who successfully suppressed his full name while earning the additional sobriquet of "The Revolver King," was supposedly born near Eagle Pass, Texas, in 1855 and had a lively career as cowboy, army scout in the Indian wars, and ace marksman in various Wild West shows, including that of Pawnee Bill (Gordon W. Lillie). This souvenir booklet contains a brief account of Harry's career, a very brief description of Texas, a dissertation by Harry on handling revolvers, and a detailed account of a cattle drive from Nieces County, Texas, to Ogolalla, Nebraska, from February to July, 1882. The text also contains some wonderful songs and several publisher’s advertisements. Some light foxing on cover, o/w very fine cond. (W.861); $195.
