Cowboy Heritage XIV
14th Old West Collectors Auction

Sponsored by the Duhamel Co.

Saturday, February 2, 2008
Civic Center Theater, Rushmore Plaza Civic Center, Rapid City, SD
Doors Open at 8:30 am ~ Sale Time 10:00 am
Early Preview and Social ... Friday Evening, Feb. 1, 5-8 pm

The 14th annual Cowboy Heritage Auction started hot and stayed hot even after seven hours of bidding on the 300 plus items! Win Bauer and Jay George brought to the Rushmore Civic Center Theatre some of the most unique and historical items yet! The books depicting the Battle of Little Big Horn and who may have killed George Custer elicited a great deal of interest. The three thumb prints by Lakota Sioux men were on the inside cover and everyone viewed them with awe. The sale only got better as the silver spurs, bits, military items, gun collections, books, saddles, chaps, rodeo memorabilia, pictures, and other items to numerous to mention were displayed and auctioned off. The Black Hills Stock Show Foundation board helps to host this event and realizes a small percentage for our scholarship and grant fund. President Lynn Husman gave a $1,000 donation to the Western Junior Livestock Foundation during the sale. It was wonderful to the have a local 4-H club help us display the items and carry them around the room. The kids worked hard and made a big difference in helping us keep the sale moving along. We hope these kids will be future recipients of our scholarship program. Thanks, kids and leader, April Kammerer! We also want to thank the many volunteers that help with selling tickets and setting up the sale.

As spectators and bidders attended the auction, they had the chance to buy raffle tickets on the Huffman print, “Saddling Horses in a Rope Corral”. We took time to draw the winner’s name during the auction and were thrilled when long time buyer, Bob Harr from California won the print. He and his wife, Darlene are always very supportive of the auction. They come a long way to buy a piece of western heritage!

Lot 244

Report of a Reconnaissance of the Black Hills of Dakota Made in the Summer of 1874; William Ludlow, Washington DC, Government Printing Office, 1875; 1st Edition; 121 pages plus three folding maps; quarto (approximately 12” x 9”)

First printed and bound edition of Ludlow's report of the Custer expedition to the Black Hills in the summer of 1874. Ludlow was the chief engineer on the expedition and in charge of the research work.  The work includes a variety of notes and observations including reports by N. H Winchell on the geology of the region and George Bird Grinnell on the zoology and paleontology of the region. It includes three oversize folding maps of the area--a hand-colored geology map (29” x 18”), a regional map (29” x 24”), and a Black Hills map (24” x 38”) that includes the route of the expedition. This is the first comprehensive report on the Black Hills interior. This expedition also discovered gold in French Creek just west of present day Custer and caused a stampede into the area and the voiding of the 1868 treaty with the Sioux that gave them possession of the Hills. This is an impressive and important document seldom found in this condition. The printing of this edition was limited to 2500, of which most of the extant copies are now in libraries.

Brown cloth binding with gilt spine titles. Minor soiling and corner bumping. Some interior age toning. The maps are generally in good to very good condition with some minor tearing at a few of the creases. Overall in good to very good condition.

Lot 245

The Black Hills Illustrated – A terse description of Conditions Past and Present of America’s Greatest Mineral Belt; George Baldwin; The Black Hills Men’s Mining Association; 1904; folio (approximately 12’ x 10”)

This is the original publication which has become exceedingly scarce. It includes dozens of photographs and illustrations from the various mining areas in the Black Hills as well as other locations. It includes several articles by noted early Black Hills personalities including Cleophas O’Harra, George Baldwin, and Seth Bullock. There was a 1970’s reprint of this piece which itself has become scarce.

The interior of the work is in very good, clean condition. It is missing the plain paper wraps and the last page is loose. There is some minor edge wear.
