     First edition. Adams, Guns 671: “Rare.” Adams, One-Fifty 52: “The author was editor of the Coffeyville Journal and was an eye-witness to the battle of the citizens and the Dalton Gang. It is said that he was the first man to reach the wounded Emmett Dalton. He wrote this little book to give an account of what he saw and published it in a limited edition immediately after this battle took place…. This is about the best account of this battle written thus far.” Dykes, Rare Western Outlaw Books, pp. 28 (illustrated) & 29. Graff 1235. Howes E107.
