September 09, 1912
THE EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, Sept. 9, 1912
* Gordon Bennett Trophy - airplanes
* French aviator Jules Vedrines victory
* Deperdussin Monocoque racing aircraft
The top of the front page has a one column heading: "AVIATION TROPHY ALMOST CERTAIN TO BE WON BY THE FRENCH" 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.
Complete with 20 pages, small library stamps within the masthead, a little irregular along the spine, generally nice.
