    3 duotone half-tone illustrations from photographs. 1 of Cody and Sitting Bull, 1 of Cody and 1 of High Horse. Notman (1885) was the photographer for Cody and Sitting Bull. J.A. Anderson for High Horse (dated in neg. 1900). These cabinet cards came from a large group which were on many different mounts. It seems as though the images were produced in large quantities and then when needed were taken to the local photographer where the Wild West Show was currently playing and they were mounted on his cards to be sold at the show. They all look remarkably like actual photographs because of the subtle two color inking and the trimming and glazing."--Hanson Collection catalog, p. 133. Forms part of the David A.
