Today I'm offering for sale Eight 1918/1919 Mid-Week Pictorial Newspapers, all of which pertain to the (Great War), WWI. The newspapers were published by The New York Times. When they first published the Pictorial they were only found in the Sunday Newspaper. But later, because of the volume of material, the photos, and public interest they had to start a Mid-Week Issue. From the start of WWI on July 28th, 1914, and to the end of WWI on November 11th, 1918, the New York Pictorial Newspaper captured the start of the War in Europe and followed closely our Americans role in the War.
For the people who love to research material on all the wars America has been involved in, these newspapers will knock your socks off. These eight newspapers are packed with stories and articles along with hundreds of photos that will take hours to absorb.
It's impossible to list everything found in the newspapers so I'll list each paper below and also what’s found on the front cover. All eight papers show their age with heavy chipping along the edges, tears on most every page, and loose pages. Amazingly the inside pages are very clean. Here’s the list:
1.) September 19th, 1918, Volume 8, No. 3; The cover shows American Boys bidding farewell to their loved ones as they ship off to Europe to enter WWI.
2.) November 7th, 1918, Volume 8, No. 10; The cover features a Canadian piece of Heavy Artillery in Action.
3.) November 21st, 1918, Volume 8, No. 12; The cover features a Picture of the Statue of Liberty that our boys saw before heading off to war.
4.) December 19th, 1918, Volume 8, No. 16; The cover features A Living Profile of President Wilson which was formed by 21,000 men at Fort Sherman located in Chillicothe, Ohio.
5.) February 20th, 1919, Volume 8, No. 25; The cover features a picture of Major General Hunter Liggett.
6.) March 20th, 1919, Volume 9, No. 3; The cover features a photo of the Russian Palace. This issue is packed with photos of Russian Leaders and military leaders.
7.) June 12, 1919, Volume 9, No. 15; The cover features an outline of Revolutionary Unrest the World Over.
8.) June 19th, 1919, Volume 9, No. 16; The cover features a photo of the Old Gate of Rommersdorf in Germany.
I’ve read several of these papers and the information inside along with all the fantastic photos will give you an idea as to how nasty WWI was and the horrible conditions our boys went through before defeating Germany.
In every paper there are one or two pages showing pictures of American boys killed in action along with the state and town they came from.
Also you'll see combat photos and the mass destruction of numerous towns and villages along with photos of nurses from the Red Cross helping the wounded. In addition there are numerous photos of the weapons that were used on both sides including nerve gas masks worn by the soldiers.
These WWI Era Papers are in fair condition but to a collector or historian these are probably in very good condition for being 97 years old. What a wonderful gift to give to a friend or member of your family who continues to want to learn about the wars America was involved in. God bless our servicemen and women and God bless our Vets!
