Title: Oakland Tribune - the Monday evening edition of the April 15, 1912 newspaper reporting the sinking of the Titanic - plus four more issues Author: ** Place: Oakland, CA Publisher: Oakland Tribune Date: April 15, 1912-April 20, 1912 Description: Includes: Evening Edition/Last Edition, Vol. LXXVII, Nos. 55-60. 58.2x42.5 cm. (23x16¾"). Includes only pages 1-6 or 1-8 of each newspaper. The first five issues (in part only) of the Oakland Tribune reporting the sinking of the Titanic. Interesting to note that the initial reporting reflects that all passengers were saved. The headline of the first (No. 56) reads, "Titanic's Passengers Saved; Liner Sinking," and it continues, "Ill-Fated Vessel Begins to Founder While Limping Toward Halifax After All Aboard are Rescued." Each issue's headline reflects the changing reports and are as follows: No. 57 "'All Women Saved from Wreck' Flashes Wireless"; No. 58 "Details of Titanic Disaster Withheld"; No. 59 "Titanic Crashed into Ice at Full Speed" with a small blurb below that which reads, "Dead placed at 1635"; and No. 60 "Titanic Rejected Aid." A fascinating collection of the news of the sinking of the Titanic, as related by the Oakland Tribune. Lot Amendments Condition: Yellowed, chipped, and with short tears to edges from minimal handling; quite well preserved, but aged as usual; very good. Item number: 217202
