June 19, 1881

THE TOMBSTONE EPITAPH, Cochise County, Arizona, June 19, 1881  Few could argue for a more recognizable title from the Old West, nor could any town be more linked to the romance & lore of the West than this one.
Tombstone is steeped in Western history, and the several movies done concerning the gunfight at the O.K. Corral have kept this town in popular culture. This issue was printed 4 months before the gunfight.
A wealth of typically Western content as would be expected. Some great Western-themed advertisements as well, some illustrated.
Complete in 4 pages, archivally rejoined at the spine, a few minor archival mends, a bit fragile as was typically for the period. This issue is in better condition than most we find.

A very rare & desirable newspaper as any extant issues of this paper all came from just one institution in California.
