South Pole explorer Roald Amundsen...

Item # 699595

January 16, 1913

EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, Jan. 16, 1913

* Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen
* South Pole - Antarctica discoverer
* Carnegie Hall public lecture - NYC

The top of the front page has a two column photo headed: "South Pole Discoverer Guest Of Geographical Society In New York" with subhead. (see images) 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.
Complete with 16 pages, 2 small library stamps within the masthead, a little irregular along the spine, a few small tape mends at the upper right corner of the front page, generally nice.
