1900 Relief of Mafeking...

Item # 682549

May 17, 1900

THE EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, May 17, 1900

* Siege of Mafeking ends - Second Boer War
* South African Republic - Relief of Mafeking
* British forces victory - Robert Baden-Powell

The top of the front page has a two column headline: "MAFEKING RELIEVED MANY BOERS KILLED" 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, generally very nice.
