Quick Overview

We are fortunate to have discovered yet another original of this famous edition of the Chicago Tribune of November 3, 1948. It is the complete, original and authentic newspaper.

This is arguably the most famous and sought after newspaper of all time. When the decision to print this paper was made, returns were coming in very slowly and time was running out before the deadline for the edition. The Tribune staff, based on the early returns, decided Dewey would be the next President. After the newspaper was delivered to the street, more returns came in and showed that Truman would be the ultimate winner and be reelected as President. The already delivered "error" newspapers were gathered for return by staff members sent out to pick them up from newsstands and homes in the Chicago area. It also has the paragraph of type in the upside down position as all original examples have since the newspaper workers in haste to get the edition to the newsstands made the error.

Original editions of this newspaper are becoming increasingly scarce. Here is a description of the condition. The paper is beautifully matted and framed with archival quality matting and glass, with a commemorative plaque at the bottom. This original classic newspaper displays beautifully with the Dewey Defeats Truman headline bold and the iconic upside down type visible.

This is actually not a complete newspaper, but rather just the front page and four additional pages but from the attractive display you would not know it. Overall we would rate the newspaper condition as very good. Typical overall toning after all these years. There is a small tear above the word "Daily" in "Chicago Daily Truman, that extends to the top edge of the paper

If you are looking for an example of this rare newspaper to display in an office, library or den and impressions are important, but the fact that it is not a complete paper does not bother you, then this is a marvelous opportunity to acquire this rare newspaper - new professional matting and frame - for a fraction of the price of a complete framed paper.

Professionally framed and matted with archival quality glass and matting. A marvelous addition to your office, library or den.
