Classic train robbery from the Old West...

Item # 638577

September 26, 1893

NEW YORK TRIBUNE, Sept. 26, 1893  The front page has over a column of text headed; "TRAIN ROBBERS TRAPPED" "Police Filled The Cars" 'Two of the Outlaws Killed and Four Captured" "A Bandit Betrays His Fellows" and more. Actually a great report as it reads like a classic train robbery from the Wild West, the text beginning: "The Kansas City, St. Joseph & Council Bluffs road foiled an attempt to-day to rob one of the passenger trains, killed tow of the bandits and captured four others..." with much detail. among the subheads are: "Made Up a Dummy Train" and "The Bandits Prepared With Dynamite".
Ten pages, rejoined at the spine, evenly toned, good condition but should be handled carefully.
