Item # 682389
January 26, 1900
THE EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, Jan. 26, 1900
* Battle of Spion Kop - Second Boer War
* South African Republic & Orange Free State
* British forces loss - Ladysmith
The top of the front page has a two column headline: "SPIONKOP ABANDONED BY THE BRITISH FORCES" 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 8 pages, 19 x 14 1/2 inches, small library stamps within the masthead, a few small binding holes and minor wear along the spine, light stains, generally very nice.
