July 17, 1881

ST. LOUIS GLOBE-DEMOCRAT, Missouri, July 17, 1881  Page 2 has nice coverage concerning the infamous Rock Island Railroad robbery by Jesse James and his gang, with the top of the page having column heads: "Old Heads On Hand" "Experts at the Helm in the Train Robbery" "They Disappear as If by Magic, as Usual" "the Story of the Crime Told by Eye-Witnesses". One of the reports begins: "There is considerable evidence to show that the train robbery on the Rock Island road last night was committed by the James gang...".
Nice to have this report in a newspaper not far from where the robbery happened.
Sixteen pages, slightly irregular at the spine, nice condition.
