1916 Pancho Villa false death report



Item # 679990

April 11, 1916

EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, April 11, 1916

* Pancho Villa false death headline
* Post Columbus, New Mexico raid


The front page has a nice banner headline: "VILLA REPORTED DEAD" with subheads. (see) Nice for display. This was a false report as Pancho Villa would live until 1923. 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. Rare as such.
Complete with 14 pages, small library stamp within the masthead, a little spine wear, generally very nice.
