Item # 613967

October 16, 1877

ST. LOUIS GLOBE-DEMOCRAT, Missouri, October 16, 1877

* Ballooning "Amazon" flight
* Lizzie Ihling Wise
* John Wise niece

This uncommon Midwestern title has news of the day with many advertisements. The back page has an article headed: "UP IN A BALLOON" "The Airy Adventures of Lizzie Ihling Wise" and more. (see)
This issue is not fragile as newsprint back then was made of cotton and linen rags, allowing them to remain very pliable and easy to handle. Complete in 8 pages, minor irregularity along spine, very nice condition.
