    [Harry S. Truman] "Dewey Defeats Truman", Chicago Daily Tribune, November 3, 1948. 17" x 24", matted and framed to an overall size of 25" x 31.5". An original first edition with the famously incorrect banner headline on the front page declaring Thomas E. Dewey the winner of the 1948 presidential race against Harry S. Truman. Truman was expected to lose, but instead won a stunning victory with a majority of the electoral vote. Only one hundred copies of the paper were published before the Tribune issued the second edition. This beautifully framed copy contains one horizontal center fold that includes some separation along the fold. The two far left columns have a small amount of tape repairs; age-toned. Strong and clear type with the famously bold headline; fine.
