Early ballooning...

Item # 614263

July 5, 1883

ST. LOUIS GLOBE-DEMOCRAT, Missouri, July 5, 1883

* Samuel Archer King
* Ballooning voyage

This uncommon Midwestern title has news of the day with many advertisements. Page 4 has an article headed: "UP IN A BALLOON" "A Bridal Tour Made in Prof. King's Air-Ship" 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 10 pages, minor irregularity along spine, very nice condition.
