CHICAGO SUNDAY TRIBUNE, August 2, 1931
* Inventor Thomas Edison becomes ill
* Prelude to his death shortly after ?
The front page has a great banner headline: "PHYSICIAN FLIES TO EDISON" with subheads. (see) Nice for display. Two related photos are on page 16. Edison would die about 2 months later. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Complete 1st section only with all 20 pages, this is the "rag edition" printed on very high quality newsprint meant for institutional holdings. In great condition as such, 4 small binding holes at the blank spine.
