1899 Battle of Magersfontein...

Item # 680199

December 13, 1899

THE EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, Dec. 13, 1899

* Battle of Magersfontein - South Africa
* Second Boer War - "Black Week"
* Lord Methuen - British Army defeat


The top of the front page has a two column headline: "METHUEN REPULSED WITH HEAVY LOSS" 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, small address stamps within the masthead, light creasing generally very nice.
