1903 Langley aerodrome flying machine...
Item # 675855
August 08, 1903
EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, Aug. 8, 1903
* Samuel Pierpont Langley
* Aerodrome flying machine failure
* Early Aviation before Wright Brothers
The front page has a one column heading: "MACHINE FLEW--INTO THE RIVER" with subhead. (see) The Wright Brothers would make their historic flight just a few months later. Surprisingly this issue is in good condition being from the "wood pulp" era. Very hard to find issues that are not totally fragile from this era in paper.
Complete with 6 pages, small library stamps within the masthead, nice condition.
