Buffalo Bill Cody Wild West & Congress of Rough Riders
Official Show Program, 1893

 

 

We recently acquired Three ORIGINAL Historical 19th Century programs for Buffalo Bill's Wild West.   One from the 1884 Season and Two for the first and second halves of the 1893 season. 

This is the Season Part One (First half of season 1893).   The 1893 Season Part 2 is also offered here on CVtreasures and can be seen below under, "Other Rare Vintage Treasures You Might Like". 

Note:  We have another one of this 1893 Wild Bill ShHow program, in better condition.  See below under, "Other Rare Vintage Treasures You Might Like". 

Note:  These are some of the earliest surviving Buffalo Bill Wild West Show programs that we have ever acquired since we started collecting historical artifacts in 1980.   Most that appear on the market are from the early 20th century. 

If you appreciate historical artifacts and in particular the Wild West of the mid and late 19th century, here is a most exciting piece  of history.  With spectacular color artwork on front and back cover.   Filled with 64 Pages of amazing historical illustrations and fascinating stories of the Wild West era
