The "other" Black Bart... 1880 outlaw...
Item # 592884
November 15, 1889
NEW YORK TRIBUNE, November 15, 1889
* Reimund Holzhey "Black Bart"
* Stage coach outlaw
The top of the front page has one column headlines: "A Stage Robber By Fits", "Holzhay Explaining His Crimes In Wisconsin" and more. The article takes about two-thirds of a column with interesting reading. However, this not "the" Black Bart from California, but rather the Black Bart of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan whose real name was Reimund Holzhey. See the hyperlink for more on him and details on the actual robbery noted in this article.
Complete in 10 pages, light browning with very minor margin wear, otherwise good. Should be handled with care.
