Item # 676776

October 31, 1895

DAILY GLOBE, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, Oct. 31, 1895

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

The top of page 2 has one column headings: "MRS. PITEXEL'S STORY" "The Widow of Holmes' Alleged Victim on the Stand" and more. (see) Report takes up over a full column. 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, a little wear at the margins, a few small archival mends at the upper right corners on the inside pages, generally good. Should be handled with care.
