Although there are many prints within this issue, arguably the most interesting is the half page print captioned: "Around The World In Seventy-Two Days and Six Hours--Reception of Nellie Bly at Jersey City on the Completion of Her Journey" which has two prints of her, one in an inset showing her being presented a golden globe. There is another inside showing the train arriving in Philadelphia. Another page has a related article headed: "A Wonderful Achievement".
Other prints in this issue include: "The Shut-Down in the Anthracite Coal Region of Penna.--A Colliery Accident..." "Views in the city of St. Louis..." "A Deserted Mining Camp Near Aspen, Colorado" and much more.
Included is the "Supplement" issue which is mostly taken up with many prints of St. Louis, Missouri, including a nice doublepage centerfold: "The Leading Industries of St. Louis"
Complete in 24 pages, some wear and foxing at the margins, nice condition.
