H.H. Holmes..... 1st U.S. serial killer....

Item # 673319

November 02, 1895

DAILY GLOBE, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, Nov. 2, 1895

* H.H. Holmes - Herman Webster Mudgett
* America's 1st serial killer trial ending
* Chicago murder castle

The top of page 2 has a one column heading: "HOMES HAS NO DEFENSE" with subheads. (see) Coverage at the end of the trial against H. H. Holmes for murder. Holmes is considered to be America's first serial killer. Nice to have in a publication close to Philadelphia, the city where the trial took place.
Complete with 4 pages, light toning and a little wear at the margins, a few small archival mends, generally good. Should be handled with care.
