THE ANGELS CAMP RECORD, Calaveras County, California, Sept. 7, 1907 Certainly the first issue we have sold from this Northern California town. A typical newspaper of the day, 8 pages never bound nor trimmed so it folds out to one large sheet. Various archival mends mostly at margins. Minor foxing, and minor wear at the folds & margins.

LESLIE"S ILLUSTRATED, New York, April 2, 1914 See the photo for the terrific, color cover on this issue, featuring a baseball player at bat. A terrific item for display. Such color covers rarely survived, hence quite scarce.
Very nice condition, although with a rather discrete inked stamp near the top just under the wing of the eagle--almost unnoticeable.

HONOLULU STAR-BULLETIN, Honolulu, Territory of Hawaii, Dec. 8, 1941 "Last Edition" The very famous Dec. 7 issue of this paper has been reprinted so many times that genuine issues are difficult to find, although they do exist.
