World War I has officially ended...
Item # 639497
June 28, 1919
THE CALL, San Francisco, June 28, 1919
* World War I officially ends
* Nice for display
* Treaty of Versailles
The front page features a great, 'screaming' headline announcing the formal end to World War I: "PEACE IS SIGNED ! " with a subhead: "World War Closes As Foe Envoys Put Names To Treaty" with the dateline at Versailles, France. The text announces the end, and includes: "...representatives of the German republic meekly signed the allied peace terms which practically ends Germany as a world power, at least for many years...".
Also on the ftpg: "Wilson's Peace Message To the American People" which begins: "My fellow countrymen: The treaty of peace has been signed...".
Complete in 26 pages, a chip to the right margin affects a few letter in the noted text (see photo) with some right margin tears to inside leaves. Four binding holes at the blank spine margin. A few small archival mends at margins of pg. 2. Rather fragile and should be handled carefully.
