Famous Figures of the American West


Buffalo Bill at Close QuartersSpacerHeroes of the PlainsSpacerDeath of Custer

Prints from J.W. Buel's Heroes of the Plains. St. Louis: Historical Publishing Co., 1881. Ca. 3 1/2 x 5 1/2. Chromolithographs. Some marginal stains, but overall very good condition. Denver.

A series of images from Buel's delightful book on the "Lives and Wonderful Adventures" of various "Celebrated Indian Fighters, Scouts, Hunters and Guides." This volume was written just after or during the period when many of these figures were cutting a wide swath of fame across the American West. The images are hardly first-hand, but they are of the period and they do reflect the widely held understanding of the adventures of these "heroes of the Plains."
