Wetmore, Helen Cody  
Buffalo Bill: Last of the Great Scouts. The Life Story of Colonel WilliamF. Cody
 Picture
Publisher: Lincoln 1989.
Fine with no dust jacket; New book. University of Nebraska Press Second Edition; Sixth Printing Paperback 8vo; 290 pages; This biography by his sister was first published in 1899, and portrays both the man and the legend. Mrs. Wetmore gives a full account of Bill's early years, and offers many tidbits of his adult life that are not widely known, such as his experiences as a Union Army spy, a land speculator, a hotelkeeper, and a justice of the peace. He liked to conclude his marriage ceremonies with the words: 'Whom God and Buffalo Bill hath joined together, let no man put asunder.' The book is entertaining as well as informative. In his introduction, historian Donald F. Danker casts doubt on the author's declaration that she had so many facts she had no thought of fiction. He states she embellished the truth somewhat to keep the legend of her brother alive and well.; ISBN: 0803252153

Hardcover 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall "Mr. Ziegler, now studying at the Harvard Medical School, graduated from Harvard College in 1941 with a Phi Beta Kappa and a magna cum laude degree. This essay was submitted by Mr. Ziegler to the History and Literature Department of Harvard College as the thesis required of undergraduate candidates for honors degrees. Professor F. O. Matthiessen, of the HIstory and Literature Department at Harvard, says of the worki: 'When I read Mr. Ziegler's essay in connection with his candidacy for honors at Harvard, I graded it summa cum laude. He has handled a difficult subject with great distinction. The maturity of his thought is shown by his ability to take some of the authorities on Browne, to profit by their views, and yet to see around them to new conclusions of his own." 105 pages. A calling card of Mr. Ziegler is laid in. Book is in VERY GOOD condition. Dust jacket is in protective plastic wrapper and is in VERY GOOD condition. A nice copy!
