January 11, 1890

THE WORLD, New York, Jan. 11, 1890  Page 2 has the  report on the return home of Nellie Bly from her round-the-world trip, an excursion which was sponsored by this newspaper. It also ran a contest to guess to exact length of time for her trip (see photo).
The report is headed: "Guess Early & Often!" which is regarding the contest. Also on page 2: "To Welcome Nellie Bly" "The Hearty Hospitality Proffered from Far-Off California".
Complete in 10 page, pulpish and browned with various small margin tears. Must be handled very carefully.
