    Buffalo Ranch Real Wild West (c. 1910). Rolled, Fine. Poster (21" X 56.25").
    Wild West shows provided largely sensationalized depictions of the American West and helped to romanticize the old west around the turn of the 20th Century. The most famous Wild West show was Buffalo Bill's Wild West which began in 1883, and many imitators would mimic Buffalo Bill's show over the following decades in hopes of recreating its success for themselves. Offered here is a poster advertising Buffalo Ranch Real Wild West, a traveling show that takes clear inspiration from Buffalo Bill and offers its attendees "history blended with pleasant instruction." Heritage has only offered a few Buffalo Ranch posters previously, and this is the first time this particular poster design has been offered. An unrestored poster with good color and an overall very presentable appearance. It has edge wear, creases, chips, tears, faint smudges, and light stains. Most of the wear is in or near the borders, but there is some missing paper on the left and right edges of the poster that extends into the image area. Both sections of paper loss are backed by paper splices attached to the verso and painted to approximate the lost pieces of the image. There are also a few noticeable tears in the title area and in the image area just below the title. On the verso are strips of paper tape.
