1903 Langley aerodrome flying machine...

Item # 677520

October 07, 1903

THE EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, Oct. 7, 1903

* Samuel Pierpont Langley
* Aerodrome flying machine failure
* Early Aviation before Wright Brothers

The top of the front page has a two column headline: "LANGLEY SHIP WOULD NOT FLY" 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, two small library stamps within the masthead, nice condition.
