Dramatic True Stories from the Great West - Baron James Addison de Peralta-Reavis said he owned 12,000,000 acres, inherited as an old Spanish land grant. Every firm and individual had to pay him heavy fees to cross his land. But one day an Arizona printer happened to see his documents of inheritance. One paper, dated 1748, was printed in a type not even invented until 1875! The great baron tumbled, and went to prison.
