EDWARD Z.C. JUDSON (NED BUNTLINE). AQS: "E.Z.C. Judson/Ned Buntline", 5x3½. In full: "When Americans cease to truckle to foreign voters there will be more manhood in our councils." Soldier, adventurer and writer Edward Z.C. Judson (1823-1886) signed both his name and penname on this quote regarding his political activities in the early 1850s. Judson had helped organize the anti-foreign, anti-labor American Party, better known, thanks to Judson, as the Know-Nothing Party (1850-1856). A nautical term for the rope at the bottom of a square sail, the name Buntline was adopted from his youthful navy days. Judson's sensational literary style had developed in the 1840s, when he began submitting exaggerated accounts of his adventures to "Knickerbocker Magazine". Arrested, shot at and even hung once (someone cut the rope), in 1869 Judson "discovered" western scout William F. Cody, nicknamed him Buffalo Bill and exploited his adventures in books and plays. By the 1870s, with hunting and fishing as his primary pastimes, the shooting, cheating, wild author of nearly 400 novellas, termed "dime novels", had settled down with his fourth wife in Stamford, New York. Horizontal fold. 3 circular stains touch the "E.Z.C.", "J" and "Ne" of signature and 5 words of writing, including signature (all legible). Ink stain at lower left edge. Overall, fine condition. Framed in the Gallery of History style: 29x16½.
