Albuquerque: University of New Mexico Press, 1969. Hardcover. vi, 306p., preface, notes, appendix, bibliography, index, map, first edition in cloth boards and dust jacket. The dj is price-clipped (neatly) and its back panel has some torn edgewear; book itself is perfectly sound, clean and unmarked, a very good copy.

Presents sometimes gruesome storytelling (truth-addicted editors might get horse-whipped) and "a complete checklist of 732 newspapers.. more than double the number listed in any previous study..Useful for journalism students and professional historians, invaluable for reference librarians, and absorbing to any reader of Western lore" (from dj text).
