Outlaw Brothers

These fascinating Jesse James artifacts were sent by my good friend Joe Rainone. Top is an ad from Frank Tousey's Boys of New York, a lovely 1910 photo and 'particulars' of the outlaw Jesse James, a rare pulp appearance from Sept. 1932 and a Richard K. Fox (National Police Gazette) publication, The Outlaw Brothers. The Outlaw Brothers was issued 3 times, once before Jesse's death, and two amendments after. Wonderful stuff --a heartfelt thanks to the many collectors of cartoons, broadsides and low literature who have contributed so much (text and illustration) to Yesterday's Papers. Thanks also to those who use the comments to contribute additional information and corrections -- always appreciated.
