[Austin, Tex, promoter; Charles B. Cochran, organizer]. First International Rodeo or Cowboy Championships. London, 1924. 3 items: souvenir booklet (16p, several photos), program for June 16 (4p), and admission ticket. All very good (booklet creased down center). ** This two-week show at Wembley Stadium brought wild west riding to the heart of London--cowboys' and cowgirls' "bronk" riding, steer wrestling, fancy roping, cowgirls' trick and fancy riding, relay races, and more. Vera McGinniss, in her trademark long pants, won two championships here. Sold with: Charles Simpson's book El Rodeo (London 1924), in which he chronicled and illustrated the rodeo, and described the bemused reaction of English horsemen. $250.00[a]. Bookseller Inventory #
