Death of "Boss" Tweed...

Item # 638575

April 13, 1878

THE NEW YORK TIMES, April 13, 1878 

* William M. "Boss" Tweed
* Tammany Hall fame

A full column on the front page is headed: "DEATH OF WM. M. TWEED" "The Ex-Tammany Chief's Last Hours In Jail" and various subheads. This is the infamous "Boss" Tweed, an American politician most notable for being the "boss" of Tammany Hall, the Democratic Party political machine that played a major role in the politics of 19th century New York City and State. At the height of his influence, Tweed was the third-largest landowner in New York City. This report carries over to take most of page 2 details  his life and career.
Eight pages, evenly toned, loss to a lower corner does not affect any text, nice condition but should be handled carefully. Great to have this report in the famous New York Times.
