''Chicago Daily Tribune'' newspaper dated 3 November 1948 exclaiming ''DEWEY DEFEATS TRUMAN'', the most famous newspaper faux-pas of the 20th century. The Tribune so quickly rushed its printing that some of the type on the second page is even printed upside down. Most of the issues were taken off the stands when the Tribune realized its error, and only 2,000 were estimated to have reached private hands. Rare complete Home edition comprises the entire first, second and third sections. Measures 16.75'' x 23.75''. Light toning to top half of paper and virtually no chipping as usually found. Overall near fine condition.
