"Special Siege" edition... Boer War...

Item # 160003

January 01, 1900

THE MAFEKING MAIL--SPECIAL SIEGE SLIP, South Africa, 1900 Fascinating newspaper published during the Boer War under "siege" conditions. Note above the dateline: "Issued Daily, Shells Permitting" and also listing which "Day of Siege" this was published. A singlesheet paper printed on thick-stock paper due to lack of newsprint, various war news & other items. Measures 8 by 13 inches. Very nice!
