1887 Buffalo Bill's Wild West Childrens Chromolithograph Toy Book By Mcloughlin For Sale
Very rare and original, 1887 McLoughlin Brothers Large Size Child's Chromolithograph Illustrated Toy Book and Buffalo Bill's Wild West Promotional Volume titled "A Peep at Buffalo Bill's Wild West". Published by McLoughlin Brothers. New York, 1887.
This outstanding Volume is printed on 8 heavy weight paper leaves and bound in wonderful Chromolithograph illustrated coated stock paper wraps. The Volume measures approx. 10" x 12" and contains 16 pages (plus the front and rear covers) with 7 fantastic full page and one double page, brilliantly colored chromolithograph illustrations (plus beautiful front and rear chromolithographed covers). The remaining 8 pages each feature a 2 color illustration that occupies the upper half of the page and poetic text that describes in words the story that was told by the various Tableaux performances one would see when viewing a performance of Buffalo Bill's Wild West.
These amazing, brilliantly colored, Western Americana illustrations feature Buffalo Bill, his Native American Indian cast, Annie Oakley, trick riding Cowboys, American Bison (Buffalo), etc. The images and the verse tell about hunting buffalo, herding cattle, fighting Indians on the plains, attacking an Indian village, the Overland Stagecoach being robbed, saving the Stage from attacking Indians, Buffalo Bill escorting western immigrant's in Conestoga Wagons through Indian territory, roping wild mustangs and retrieving a hat that has fallen to the ground from the back of a speeding horse. The half page illustrations include a view of Custer's Last Stand, an Indian War Dance, a Teepee Village, Annie Oakley shooting from the back of a horse, Bill and Annie "dancing" while on horseback, etc. We have seen this fantastic Volume only once before in the past 33+ years and are once again amazed that it appears to be not only a wonderful Children's Toy Book but also a fantastic promotional item for Buffalo Bill's Wild West - possibly even an item sold on the grounds of the Show as a Souvenir!!!
As mentioned above, the Volume is bound in its original, coated stock paper wraps with outstanding chromolithograph illustrations on both the outer and inner surfaces of the wrappers. The covers are in good to very good condition - the colors are bright and vibrant and the binding is intact and sound. There is some edge wear to both the front and rear cover with a chip at the lower right hand corner of the front cover as well as a smaller chip near the top of the right hand edge. There is some wear at the spine edge of both the front and rear cover as can be seen in the scans below as well as a surface edge chip near the bottom of the left hand edge of the rear cover. The interior pages are tight and complete and exhibit light edge wear only and some scattered, minimal spots of soiling and staining mostly confined to the blank margin areas. Overall this is a well preserved example of this exceptionally rare 1887 McLoughlin title.
This is only the third time in 33+ years that we have encountered this fantastic Volume much less owned an example. It is surely one of THE most desirable McLoughlin Children's Chromolithograph Toy Books and it surely is a fantastic Buffalo Bill's Wild West related publication.
An exceptionally rare and important, McLoughlin Brothers Children’s Toy Book with outstanding Chromolithograph Plates of scenes from Buffalo Bill's Wild West and a fantastic addition to even the most advanced collection!!!
