A first edition (thus) of the autobiography of Tom Horn, the notorious figure from the Old West.

Horn was convicted of murdering a 14-year-old boy (some say unjustly) and hanged in Cheyenne, Wyoming in 1903. This memoir was written by Horn in jail while awaiting his sentence, possibly with assistance by others. Includes all of the original 13 plates.
