* The Earl of Carnarvon death (1st report)

The top of the front page has a one column heading: "LORD CARNARVON DIES AT CAIRO OF BLOOD POISONING" with subheads and photo of Carnarvon. (see) First report coverage on the death of George Herbert, 5th Earl of Carnarvon. This led to the story of the "Curse of Tutankhamun".
Complete with 16 pages, light toning and some wear at the margins, mainly along the right margin, should be handled with care.
