Early San Diego...

Item # 636705

July 26, 1873

THE WORLD, San Diego, California, July 26, 1873 

* Old West title

The front page has an interesting article headed: "The Shah" which begins: "The Shah himself is an ugly cuss..." and also notes: "...he has caused many a poor fellow's head to be chopped off on a notice of five minutes...A fierce-eyed, tallow-visaged, ugly beast as ever wore a diamond or carried scimiter...and his Grand Visier, who is along with him, is only a trifle less brutal & vicious..." with more (see).
Other news and ads of the day. Four pages, never bound nor trimmed, some loss at the margins, some small margin tears, a few discrete archival mends. A very early newspaper from San Diego.
