An incredibly graphic election issue...

Item # 695744

November 09, 1892

THE STATE, Richmond, Virginia, Nov. 9, 1892  

* President Grover Cleveland
* Presidential election victory
* Amazingly displayable

The entire front page is a celebration of the election of Grover Cleveland as President. It is done in a very dramatic fashion, featuring a huge engraving of a rooster (once the symbol of the Democratic party) that stretches from just below the dateline to the bottom of the front page. There are also insets of both Cleveland and Adlai Stevenson. There is no text nor headline, with above the masthead noting: "Our Victory Edition". As such it appears to be complete in just 4 pages.
As seen in the photos there are various repairs with some dirtiness/staining to an upper quadrant. Many archival mends within as well. But what a wonderful issue for display.
