Re: Off topic, but of Western interest

Looks like there was an 1877 edition published by Bryan, Brand & Company with 406 pages.

and

1891 edition published by Royal Publishing Co. of St. Louis 2ith 431 pages. This one is mentioned as having 26 color plates, which may account for the different page count.

Both editions are readily available in current reprint editions for about $15 each.

There is also an 1882 (5th or later edition) published by Sun Publishing in St. Louis with 413 pages. And another 1882 edition by S. T. Buck Son & Co., Lewisburgh, PA, with 413 pages. Yet another 1882 edition by Scammell & Company, Philadelphia and St. Louis with 413 pages.

And a 1891 edition by F. H. Rogers & Co., Omaha with 413 pages.

1892 edition published by Vandawalker & Co. with 413 pages.

For a reading copy, one of the reprint paperbacks would be fine. For a book collector, it looks like some of the originals go for big bucks, even when in ratty condition (or at least people are ASKING for big bucks).
