    BOUND VOLUME OF THE RARE "TOMBSTONE DAILY PROSPECTOR" FOR THE ENTIRE YEAR OF 1889 - This is an entire volume and an excellent run of these rare newspapers during the important mining year of 1889 in Tombstone, Arizona. It is a complete full year account of the daily life and death in Tombstone, including bank robberies, saloon fights, offering a wealth of unpublished historical information. Local newspapers such as this were instrumental in promoting civil growth and ridding the town of outlaws. Lawlessness was so rampant that in 1882 the President of the United States threatened to put Tombstone under martial law. As Tombstone had become a base for gamblers and outlaws including Johnny Ringo and the most famous of all, the Earp brothers and of course the shoot-out at OK coral is perhaps the most famous gun battle in history. A rare bound volume beginning with; VOL. III. TOMBSTONE, ARIZONA, TUESDAY MORNING, JANUARY 1, 1889, and ending withVOL.IV. TOMBSTONE, ARIZONA, TUESDAY EVENING, DECEMBER 31, 1889.

    Condition: Overall condition of the newspapers are fragile because of the acidity in the paper that they were printed on, many however are very fresh with strong imprints.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
