Rare original First Edition of the Lizzie Borden Arrest from the Albany Telegram dated Saturday August 20th 1892, fascinating detail and articles throughout this complete paper for what turned out to be the trial of the 19th century.
Interesting to note that many of the facts and local commentary in this newspaper contrast with what is written on the net and in books.
But what still remains is the sadistic childrens rhythm:
"Lizzie Borden took an ax," the ditty goes, "and gave her mother 40 whacks. And when she saw what she had done, she gave her father 41."
Condition Report: Natural foxing and fraying consistent with age of newspaper.
