An eight page heavily illustrated newspaper, sheet size 22 1/2 x 17 1/4 inches. 7 1/2 x 10 3/4 inch color political cartoon on front page. It depicts a ferocious Wall Street "Speculator" destroying the pillars of "Confidence" and "Prosperity" supporting a heavy cross-beam identified as "The American Nation." Beneath the image, text reads: "A Disaster which may Follow the Present Activity in Wall Street." A striking image; forever timely. Overall good clean condition. The Globe began life in 1881 and became so successful that in the 1890s thirty-three separate editions of the newspaper were printed to service different parts of the country. This copy of the newspaper is in very good condition, and contains numerous articles that, surprisingly, retain their interest. Item #53031
