May 12, 1900

THE EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, May 11 & 12, 1900

* James J. Jeffries vs. James J. Corbett
* Heavyweight boxing title fight (1st report)


The May 11th issue has one column heading at the top of the front page: "JEFFRIES-CORBETT" with subheads. (see)
The May 12th issue has a one column heading on the front page: "Jeffries The Victor" with subhead. (see) First report coverage on the James J. Jeffries vs. James J. Corbett for the heavyweight boxing championship. 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.
Each issue is complete with 8 pages, small library stamps within the masthead, small binding holes along the spine, generally nice.
