Item # 680207
November 29, 1899
THE EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, Nov. 29, 1899
* Battle of Modder River - South Africa
* Second Boer War
* Lord Methuen - British Army victory
The top of the front page has a two column headline: "BLOODIEST BATTLE OF THE CENTURY" 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, small library stamp within the masthead, a few small binding holes along the spine, generally very nice.
