1908 Messina earthquake disaster...

Item # 682685

December 30, 1908

EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, Dec. 30, 1908

* 1908 Messina earthquake disaster
* Sicily, Calabria, Southern Italy

The front page has a banner headline: "Appalling is the Death List in Southern Province of Italy and Throughout Eastern Sicily; HALF POPULATION VICTIMS OF QUAKE" with subhead and related Illustration. (see) Nice for display. 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, two small library stamps within the masthead, some small binding holes long the spine, generally nice.
