Item # 670368

December 10, 1893

THE WORLD, New York, Dec. 10, 1893

* Nellie Bly expose reporting
* "Dr. Parkhurst to Nellie Bly"

Although Nellie Bly's is perhaps most famous for her trip around the world in 72 days, most of her work as a reporter for the World newspaper was exposing various vices in society. She was a pioneer in her field, and launched a new kind of investigative journalism.
This issue has a terrific & very detailed report from her on Dr. Parkhurst of New York City, with heads on page 33 including: "DR. PARKHURST TO NELLIE BLY" "The President of the Society for Suppression of Crime Explains His Motives and His Methods of Work" and more with related illustration. (see) The article is signed by her in type: Nellie Bly.
Nellie Bly worked exclusively for the New York World newspaper so her work would only be reported in this newspaper, save for perhaps limited mention in other competing newspapers.
Complete in 48 pages, light toning, otherwise nice but should be handled carefully due to potential fragility.
