1899 Battle of Colenso, South Africa...

Item # 680153

December 16, 1899

THE EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, Dec. 16, 1899

* Battle of Colenso - South Africa
* Second Boer War - "Black Week"
* Redvers Buller - British Army defeat


The top of the front page has a two column headline: "ENGLAND PANIC STRICKEN OVER BULLER'S DEFEAT" with subheads. (see) 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 8 pages, a few small binding holes along the spine, generally very nice.
