Nellie Bly expose...
Item # 648393
January 20, 1895
THE WORLD, New York, January 20, 1895
* Nellie Bly reporting
* "In Jail" w/ Eugene V. Debs
Nellie Bly is perhaps most famous for her trip around the world, which turned the fictional work by Jules Vernes' "Around the World in Eighty Days" into fact for the first time. But there were various other projects which consumed her journalistic career, perhaps most notably her undercover work in exposing the poor treatment of patients at the Blackwell Island asylum for the insane.
This issue has one of her articles (she did a few over the years) on page 7: "NELLIE BLY IN JAIL" with subheads and 3 related printS (see). The article is signed at its conclusion: Nellie Bly. See photos for portion of the text here.
Since Nellie Bly was a reporter for "The World" this would be the only newspaper in which this report would be found making this a very rare item.
Complete in 42 pages, light toning, partially loose along the spine, some margin wear, generally in good condition. Should be handled with care.
