1897 Robert E. Peary to discover the North Pole ?...



Item # 679085

October 01, 1897

THE EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, Oct. 1, 1897

* Robert Edwin Peary Sr.
* North Pole exploration


The top of the front page has a one column heading: "POINTS FROM PEARY" with subheads. (see) Peary would discover the North Pole about 12 years 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 4 pages, a few small library stamps within the masthead, a few small binding holes along the spine, generally nice.
