Robert Falcon Scott found dead...

Item # 680325

February 11, 1913

EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, Feb. 11, 1913

* Robert Falcon Scott officially dead
* Explorer who discovered South Pole ?
* Publicly announced for 1st time

The top of the front page has a one column heading: "CAPT. SCOTT AND PARTY STRUGGLE GAMELY" 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 18 pages, small library stamp within the masthead, a little irregular along the spine, generally very nice.
