CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE, March 13, 1940
* Moscow Peace Treaty signed (1st report)

The front page has a great banner headline: "FINNISH WAR ENDS" with subheads. Nice for display. Two related maps are on the front page. First report coverage on the Moscow Peace Treaty which ended 105-day Winter War between Finland and the Soviet Union.
Complete with all 38 pages, light toning at the margins, small library stamp within the masthead, small binding holes along the spine, generally nice.
wikipedia notes: The Moscow Peace Treaty was signed by Finland and the Soviet Union on 12 March 1940, and the ratifications were exchanged on 21 March. It marked the end of the 105-day Winter War. The treaty ceded parts of Finland to the Soviet Union. However, it preserved Finland's independence, ending the Soviet attempt to annex the country. The treaty was signed by Vyacheslav Molotov, Andrey Zhdanov and Aleksandr Vasilevsky for Soviet Union, and Risto Ryti, Juho Kusti Paasikivi, Rudolf Walden and Väinö Voionmaa for Finland.
