Graphic & sensationalized reporting...
Item # 638233
January 25, 1897
THE WORLD, New York, January 25, 1897 As was the style for this period when newspapers were very competitive, this issue is filled with a wealth of illustrations accompanying the varied articles, an attempt to make newspapers more graphic & appealing. And the reports are somewhat sensationalized, this issue showing "Henry Barnard Arrested In His Home For Counterfeiting", "Schoolboy M'Conville Assaulted And Robbed", "Fargo's Principal Street, Opera House, and South Eighth Street", Big Landslide On The Harlem Speedway" and much, much more.
Complete in 12 pages, partially loose at the spine, various margin tears/archival mends, and evenly toned. Fragile - should be handled VERY carefully.
