1910 Buffalo Bill's Wild West & Pawnee Bill's Far East Show Program For Sale
Very rare and original, 1910, Advance Program / Souvenir Booklet from “Buffalo Bill’s Wild West and Pawnee Bill's Far East”. This rare and wonderful onsite "Program" from Buffalo Bill’s Traveling Extravaganza measures approx. 7” x 10” and contains 32 pages of text and illustrations relating to the show, its’ history, Buffalo Bill’s past as the Chief of the U.S. Army Scouts, the American West, Indian Fighting, Cowboys and many other aspects of the performers and the show. It is titled on the cover "Buffalo Bill offers You Good Bye". Sub-title reads "A Life Story and Book of Brave Deeds of the Wild West and Far East / The Farewell Salute / Magazine and Official Review". This Program also includes the 8 page insert giving the complete listing of the show's program that included 19 "Episodes".
In 1910 Buffalo Bill Cody began what would become a 3 year "Farewell" Tour with a combined show of his own "Wild West" and Pawnee Bill's "Far East". This Program is from the 1910 season and was sold on site at performances of the Show. There was a separately issued "Daily Event Program" which is often found tipped in or inserted into examples of the Souvenir Booklet offered here. The Program offered here does include the 8 page insert at the front with an actual list of events in the performance.
The front cover of the Program is chromolithographed and features a full figure portrait of William “Buffalo Bill” Cody dressed in his trademark buckskin jacket and hip high boot extenders. Cody has removed his hat and is saluting the unseen crowd and in the opposite hand he holds a repeating rifle (likely a Winchester). In the background is an image of a Native American Indian Village and at the lower right hand corner a conjoined bust portrait of Cody and Pawnee Bill. The rear cover is blank but the inside covers feature full page chromolithograph advertisements for Walter Baker Chocolate (inside front) and Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer (inside back cover).
Besides the numerous photographic and artistic images and text contained in the Booklet, there are also a number of advertisements for very early automobiles, cigars, firearms, etc.
