NEW YORK TRIBUNE, April 26, 1865  

* Abraham Lincoln's funeral procession
* New York City - Black mourning borders


Close to half of the first column on the front page is taken up with headlines--using type larger than typically found--reporting on the funeral of President Abraham Lincoln. Some of the heads include: "OBSEQUIES OF ABRAHAM LINCOLN" "Universal Sorrow" "The Most Sublime & Solemn Funeral in History" "Scenes & Incidents" and more.
The entire front page is taken up with reports of the funeral proceedings in New York City. More related reporting on inside pages, including additional one column heads, plus much on the closing events of the Civil War as well. Most of the back page is taken up with funeral reports.
All columns on all 8 pages are black-bordered, very nice condition.
