Hi there !
I'm almost certain that I'm going to play Deadlands Classic, but is it possible to use the books like Law Dogs and Back East with the first edition?
Just for clarity's sake, I mean the version with the Marshall's guide and the Player's guide combined in one book.

Most of the differences between the first and second edition of classic (original and revised) are slight. The big ones are how hucksters and shamans acquired their spells, which may take some tweeking of NPC stats. Some other changes include movement, fanning, and related aptitudes. The accumulated rulings have been kicking around the net in various locations, I was able to find them here. They list all of the changes in the section titled "Rulebooks:Deadlands, Revised Edition."
To answer your question, yes, you can use pretty much any Deadlands Classic supplement with any version of those rules. Just be aware of how some of the character building rules changed between editions and you'll be fine.
Law Dogs, by the way, was written for the pre-revised version of Deadlands.
