Six consecutive months of the ''New York Tribune'' from January to June of 1892, bound. All aspects of turn-of-the-century news are contained throughout, from the first states' experiments with Prohibition, to women's suffrage and the election of 1893. An incredible assortment of groundbreaking events occurred during this slice of 1892 life and are covered here, including the first council called by Booker T. Washington at Tuskegee, Yale's decision to begin admitting women to graduate school, and the green-lighting of plans for the Union Railway and Indian reservations. The deaths of several notable figures are covered, including England's heir presumptive, the Duke of Clarence; Noah Porter, the President of Yale; Guy de Maupassant; Charles Spurgeon, and William Astor. A Tennyson play is reviewed months before his death, and news of Rabbi Mendes' shooting breaks. Throughout the entire six months, the topics appearing most consistently are the Chicago World's Fair, the debate over a potential new silver standard, the effects of Tammany in Congress, and the foreshadowing of Prohibition. Stories of men killed in mining accidents, train wrecks, and robberies pepper the pages. The Russian famine figures prominently in the first half, as does the outbreak of civil war in Chile, and the failing wool industry. A serial column called ''Chivalry in Blue'' features Civil War soldier letters. It's replaced by ''American Millionaires'', a column examining the country's wealthiest men by state. An article pertaining to the Hopkins fortune appears, along with coverage of Andrew Carnegie's philanthropic efforts. As the months go on, focus shifts to Harrison and the upcoming Presidential election. In every issue, the prices of wholesale produce are included, with agricultural tips, literary reviews, period advertising and editorials. More than 50 issues each run 16pp. Measures 12.5'' x 18''. Khaki green cloth boards with black printed lettering to spine. Foxing to boards and toning to leaves. Separation of rear interior hinge with backstrip. Fragile leaves bear occasional small tears to edges. In very good condition, especially given age.
