Example text

N. Gammel, of Austin, and issued in tan wrappers. Although the original contained illustrations, neither of Page xi these reprints retained them. The latest reprint of this book was made by the Frontier Press, of Houston, Texas, in 1952, and contains new illustrations from the famous Rose Collection. This Bass book is similar to the one written by Hogg in 1876, for there was nothing much new to add since both got their information from living eyewitnesses and contemporary newspaper accounts. This brings us to the last of the quartet of rare books on Sam Bass, herewith being reprinted for the first time.

This book by Charles Lee Martin was the last of the quartet and has become one of the rarest. Personally I know of but one copy of the original, and that is in the Library of Congress. For some reason all but one of these four books were published anonymously. Perhaps it was because they were written during the life of Bass and his followers and there was some fear of retaliation, but more likely it was because the writers were too proud to have their names associated with that of an outlaw. In those days the paper-backed books about outlaws were classed with the "penny dreadfuls" forbidden to youngsters and read in secret by adults.

To be known as the author of such a book did not improve one's literary reputation or his standing in the community. Therefore, most authors of such wrote under a pseudonym.
