H.H. Holmes..... 1st U.S. serial killer....

Item # 666304

October 29, 1895

DAILY GLOBE, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, October 29, 1895

* H.H. Holmes - Herman Webster Mudgett
* America's 1st serial killer trial begins
* Chicago murder castle

The top of page 2 has a one column heading: "THE TRIAL OF HOLMES" with subheads. (see) First report coverage on the start of the trial against H. H. Holmes for murder. Holmes is considered to be America's first serial killer. Nice to have in a publication close to Philadelphia, the city where the trial took place.
Complete with 4 pages, light toning at the margins, a little irregular along the spine, generally nice. Should be handled with care.
