Robertus Love (1867-1930) was a Missouri-born American journalist and author. His career included virtually every duty connected with the writing side of newspapers and took him on assignments from coast to coast.
He was the author of three books, Poems All the Way from Pike (1904), The Wild West: Log of a Cowboy, and The Rise and Fall of Jesse James (1926), first printed in the Post-Dispatch. This latter work, a running story of Missouri banditry, resulted from his life-long interest in Mid-Western outlaws.
Note: Dj's title, "The Life and Times of Jesse James," differs from the title page "The Rise and Fall of Jesse James," but we don't believe this dj has been "married" to this copy from a different edition.
EXCELLENT CONTENT! A solid, clean copy with light uniformly age-toned paper in a dynamic unclipped dust jacket which has light soil, minimal fading, and slight edgewear.
