Item Description

This extremely rare book is titled: Riata and Spurs by Charles A. Siringo and it is the very scarce first edition. It is rare because this book was censored in later editions and the first copies were recalled from all of the selling outlets with very few surviving except for the copies that had already been sold previous to the confiscation order. Mr. Siringo had a colorful career as a frontier lawman in the old west and was later hired by the Pinkerton Detective Agency to infiltrate the mining operations in Idaho during the early union days. The book was recalled because of what he had written about during those times and the mention of Pinkerton's involvment. This book is a nice solid tight copy and it has a few extras included. 1) An autographed insert which must have been given away at a book signing 2) Another promotional insert telling about the contents of the book with all of the chapters and brief summaries which are in the book, once again, this must have been given away by the bookstore during the signing event. Those 2 pieces are probably more rare than the book itself so have a good look and thanks for stopping by to see it. More pictures of the inside contents of this book available upon request from serious buyers This book will be shipped media mail within the USA. ***Items sold in Washington State will be subject to 9% sales tax***
