Tombstone

Burns, Walter Noble

NY: Doubleday, Page & Co., 1927. Book. Good-. Hardcover. 1st Edition. A collection of Burns' tales of the Arizona town derived from newspaper accounts. Could not swear it is not a book club but it seems most unlikely. No debossing mark present, fore edge deckle, 1st edition statement in place. The books sole notable structural flaw is a bit of gapping at the gutter prior to the title page, ie cheesecloth can be seen but no actual separation has occurred, the gap is less than 1 16th". Some bumping and typical wear is noted. With gentle handling, will tolerate many more readings, a superb candidate for restoration. Foto will follow. *We feel that books offered for internet sale should be described thoroughly and accurately. We assure the buyer that books listed by Brass Dolphin are so described, using the strict, traditional standards.*.

From the author's note on sources: "My account of the origin of the Earp-Clanton feud and the street battle in which it culminated is based on testimony from the witness stand. At his trial after the fight in which Tom and Frank McLowery and Billy Clanton were killed, Wyatt Earp read a long and carefully prepared paper which gave in detail the Earp side of the vendetta, and Ike Clanton gave the Clanton side... For my version of the assassination of Morgan Earp and the subsequent killing of Frank Stilwell and Florentino Cruz, or Indian Charlie, I have depended on the evidence brought out at the coroner's inquests." The author also made full use of The Tombstone Epitaph; Tombstone Nugget, and Tucson Star, records in the rooms of the Arizona Pioneers Historical Society, memoirs of and interviews with eye-witnesses, among other sources. Bound in the original green cloth. Rader 548. Adams 6-GUNS 338: "The author makes the turbulent old town of Tombstone live vividly... He is very much in favor of the Earps and paints them in glowing colors... The truth is somewhat less extravagant.". First Printing of the First Edition. Hardcover.

Tombstone : An Iliad of the Southwest (Historians of the Frontier and American West Series)

Walter Noble Burns

Paperback. New. Paperback. First published in 1927, Tombstone defined the legend of lawman-gunfighter Wyatt Earp. A mixture of fact and fiction, Walter Noble Burnss portrayal of Earp has profoundly influenced subsequent generations of historians, novelists, and screen writers. Born in 1849, Earp grew up on the Missouri-Kansas frontier and first came to notice as a no-nonsense town marshal in rip-roaring Dodge City, Kansas. Moving to wide-open Tombstone, Arizona in 1879, he became a businessman and deputy United States marshal where he was soon joined by his four brothers. In Burnss narrative, the Earp clan represents law and order in the lawless, chaotic Old West. The collision between civilization and frontier explodes in the bloody and legendary shootout at the OK Corral between the Earps and the Clanton-McLowery gang. The Earps prevailed, but the subsequent shootings of two Earp brothers drove the calm, courageous, and somewhat emotionless Wyatt to take the law into his own hands. In a personal rage, he hunted and killed the treacherous assassins. Wyatt Earps most recent biographer, Casey Tefertiller, discusses the influence of Tombstone on the history and legend of Wyatt Earp and the Old West. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN.
