xiv, 130 pp, light brown boards w/red lettering and w/black-and-white pictorial front panel. Clay Allison was not a professional gambler, nor was he a fugitive from justice, nor did he ever wear the lawman's star. For most of his life he was a successful cattle rancher and livestock broker. There was some truth to many of Allison's escapades. He did shoot a man while having dinner; he did extract a dentist's tooth; he did dance nude in public; he did destroy a frontier printing press and other escapades. slight sunning to the spine and slight rubbing to the corners. prev owner wrote on the ffep.

xviii, 207 pp, black cloth covered boards w/gilt lettering, orange endpapers w/dark brown illustrations of various guns, dj black-orange w/color illustrated front panel and black-and-white photos of the author & artist on the rear panel. The author strips seven famous mankillers of their glories, explodes the lies and legends surrounding them, and shows them to be far less thatn immortal tin-star heroes. The Terrible Seven: Wyatt Earp, Doc Holliday, Bat Masterson, Clay Allison, Ben Thompson, Luke Short and Wild Bill Hickok, were members of the saloon and gambling crowd, habitues of the lawless sections of the trail towns and mining camps. They had few scruples, nor morals. they were trigger-happy toughs who swaggered along the streets and across the plains and mountains. some chipping along the top edge of the dj and small tears at top of the dj spine.
