The front page has a great banner headline: "NAME SMITH BY 850 VOTES" with subheads and photo of Smith. Nice for display. Full back page pictorial is also nice for display. (see) Great to have from the city where the convention took place. Very rare as such.
Complete with all 40 pages, this is the "rag edition" printed on very high quality newsprint meant for institutional holdings. In great condition as such
