Nellie Bly leaves for famous trip...

Item # 661060

November 15, 1889

THE NEW YORK TIMES, November 15, 1889

* Nellie Bly's trip around the World
* Augusta Victoria ocean liner

Page 5 has a very small and discrete one column heading at the bottom of the page: "Flying Trips Of Two Young Women". See image for 1st report coverage on Nellie Bly leaving for her famed trip around the World. Unfortunate for such a small report here, maybe because the "Times" were rivals with "The World". Still a first report in a NYC paper.

Other news of the day. Complete in 8 pages, light browning, a little margin wear and minor margin tears, must be handled with care.
