* Nellie Bly's trip around the World
* Welcome home
The front page has a very fine article on the famed traveler and reporter Nellie Bly as she nears competition of her epic trip around the world. A few bits mention: "...a few minutes later Miss Bly was taken off on a tug while her fellow passengers on the same steamer gave her a parting cheer...boarded a special train which was in waiting for her...The train bearing Nellie Bly arrived at 2 pm. A large crowd assembled at the depot to see her..." and more, including some nice details of her experiences in Europe and Asia.
Nice to have this report on the front page. Also on the ftpg. is a detailed account headed: "TRAIN ROBBERY".
Eight pages, minor ftpg. foxing, irregular at the spine margin due to disbinding, news agent's stamp at the top, some dirtiness to the ftpg, generally good.
