1918 HMS Racoon wreck...

Item # 682506

January 12, 1918

EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, Jan. 12, 1918

* HMS Raccoon disaster
* British destroyer wreck

The front page has a banner heading: "Ninety-Six Men Lost With British Destroyer" with subhead. (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 12 pages, small library stamp within the masthead, small library label on the front page, irregular along the spine, generally very nice.
