Reverse inscribed "The Hero of Desperados". He is seated holding a Winchester lever action rifle, with a revolver in his belt. (Dimensions: 2.5 by 4 1/3".)

Our thanks to Ryan Hardesty for the excellent clarification on Devil Anse's clothing.

Following is a link to a newspaper story from 1911 that makes reference to those clothes. According to the story, which seems to be true, Devil Anse's son Johnse brought the cowboy suit home from a trip to Colorado in 1885 and he and Devil Anse and brother Cap took turns getting their photos made in it.

Photogravure, Geronimo, Apache
By Edward S. Curtis - SOLD


Photogravure, Geronimo, Apache
By Edward S. Curtis, entire view

From Wikipedia: "Geronimo - Apache (1905) Description by Edward S. Curtis: This portrait of the historical old Apache was made in March, 1905. According to Geronimo's calculation he was at the time seventy-six years of age, thus making the year of his birth 1829. The picture was taken at Carlisle, Pennsylvania, the day before the inauguration of President Roosevelt, Geronimo being one of the warriors who took part in the inaugural parade at Washington. He appreciated the honor of being one of those chosen for this occasion, and the catching of his features while the old warrior was in a retrospective mood was most fortunate."

From Wikipedia: "This image came from The North American Indian by Edward S. Curtis. These images were published between 1907 and 1930"

About the image being offered:

Geronimo-Apache: Frame 23.75 by 18.25 View 16.25 by 10.75 Actual Tissue size: 12" by 17"
Upper left: "Plate 2"
Lower left: "Geronimo Apache"
Lower Center: "From Copyright Photograph 1907 by E. S. Curtis"
Lower Right: "Photogravure John Andrew and Son"

Exceptional authentic example, possibly one of the overruns on India Proof or Gambi Tissue Paper. Although this iconic image of Geronimo presents very nicely in the current frame, we would recommend a minor investment in a museum mounting to preserve this image for the generations to come. The current owner self mounted the photogravure on acid free using common tape, and there are now very minor paper losses to each corner where the tape remains affixed. Losses are invisible under matting, and we have obtained an estimate of 300-500 for restoration (details available), plus the cost of appropriate museum quality mat.
