Six-Guns 2033, Graff 3808, Adams One-Fifty , Howes 519, " Rather libelous account of his 22 years detective operations against the cattle rustlers, mining swindlers, etc. The greater portion of the edition was destroyed by the Pinkertons on a court decree." Siringo shipped out some copies before they were confiscated and he took a few with him when he fled to Santa Fe. The Pinkerton's bought up all they copies they could, but some survived, thus its rarity.
