1916 Hiram Maxim death.... Machine guns...

Item # 682325

November 24, 1916

EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, Nov. 24, 1916

* Sir Hiram Stevens Maxim death (1st report)
* Automatic machine gun creator - inventor

Near the bottom of the front page is a two column heading: "MAXIM, INVENTOR OF MACHINE GUN, DEAD". (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 14 pages, small library tamp in the masthead, a little irregular along the spine, generally very nice.
