1867 Manhattan, Kansas earthquake...

Item # 616132

April 25, 1867

THE NEW YORK TIMES, April 25, 1867

* Manhattan, Kansas

Page 5 has a very small and discrete heading: "Earthquake in Missouri" See image for very brief text. This was in fact the Manhattan, Kansas earthquake. A early report the day after it happened. Unfortunately for the short article here but still a 1st report in this venerable newspaper title. Of course technology was non existent back then which is the reason for this vague report.
Other news of the day. Complete in 8 pages, minor spine wear, nice condition.
