Title: The Loomis Gang
Author: George W. Walter
Publisher: Prospect Books
Printing Year: 1953 Author-Signed Stated First Edition

Condition/Details: Bound in red cloth with gilt lettering to spine, this antique volume is a scarce author-signed first edition of a history of a notorious family of outlaws that operated in central New York during the 19th century. This work is based on "court records, newspaper accounts, contemporary diaries and personal interviews" and contains "tales of counterfeiting, horse-stealing, barn-burning, petty thievery and murder" (dust jacket text).

The Loomis gang specialized in theft of horses and livestock rustling, but did not stick to those activities exclusively, being quite willing to deal in stolen goods, burglarize, and counterfeit money. The Loomis family itself was the nucleus of a gang composed of corruptible youths from their locality, as well as criminal elements from elsewhere. They were successful enough, both in crime and legitimate agriculture, to be able to buy protection from the authorities, a common practice in New York State at that time. For many years, the Loomises were also careful to cultivate the goodwill of their neighbors; they generally did not steal from people who lived near them, and when thefts from their neighbors did occur, those who went to the Loomis farm for help often received aid in recovering their property. This helped ensure that outside authorities attempting to gather evidence against the family and its associates would have difficulties with getting local assistance - people were either in the Loomises' debt or afraid of them. Anybody who complained to the law about the Loomises' activities ran real risk of mysterious fires on their property, and the Loomises always had plausible alibis. (Biographical information courtesy of Wikipedia)

The author's signature appears on the half title page. The work is illustrated with photographic plates. The volume shows light external age/wear, and is solidly bound with clean pages. The dust jacket shows wear, with loss to the bottom two inches of the spine and bottom half of the rear of the jacket, as well as tearing and creasing along the edges. The price of $3.75 remains on the inside front flap of the jacket. The delicate jacket is now in a clear, protective mylar cover. The book measures approximately 5.75" x 8.25" and contains 244 pages.

This lot comes from the collection of Charles Rand Penney of Lockport, New York, considered one of the great American collectors of the Twentieth Century. Born in Buffalo, New York, in 1923, Penney acquired his BA from Yale University in 1965, a law degree from the University of Virginia in 1951, and in 1995 he was honored with a Doctorate of Fine Arts from the State University of New York for his life-long support for the arts. Dr. Penney received many other awards for his continuing contributions in this field.

Dr. Penney began collecting art by Western New Yorkers in the mid-30's, eventually collecting more than 100,000 objects that he kept and researched in his own home. Dr. Penney loaned his artwork extensively throughout Western New York and the rest of the world. In the early 1990s, he donated his collection of Western New York art to the Burchfield Art Center at Buffalo State College. As a result, the center was renamed the Burchfield-Penney Art Center to memorialize his generous and landmark donation.
