Photograph, with printed ID on the image, "TATON KAIYOTONKA, (signed) Sitting Bull, The above is a true Photo and Autograph of 'Sitting Bull.' The Sioux Chief at the Custer Massacre". The autograph is a facsimile. The verso lists the photograph as "No. 1" in a series of twenty-four photographs issued by Bailey, Dix & Mead of Fort Randall, Dakota Territory. The long verso printed caption reads: "The noted Chief, With his band of Uncapapa [sic] Souix [sic] Indians, now prisoners of war at Fort Randall, D. T., is 43 years of age; Weight 200 pounds; Height, 5 ft., 9 in. Has had over 100 engagements with their natural enemies, the Crows, of which he proudly boasts, but is too shrewd to acknowledge to having killed any whites. He has had 9 wives. The two now living with him appear with descriptions in Nos. 5, 11, and 20. Has had one child by each of his first 6 wives." The text is slightly light, the image is sharp with good contrast. Heritage notes $930, 2020.
