Item # 676587

THE EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, Nov. 18, 1910
* Aviator Ralph Johnstone death
* Altitude record holder
* 1st American pilot airplane crash death
The front page has a two column heading: "AVIATORS SHOCKED BY DEATH OF JOHNSTONE" with subhead (see). 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 12 pages, small library stamp within the masthead, some small binding holes along the spine, generally nice.
