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 in exceptional condition.

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. 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 a complete newspaper, which includes the famous front page. Overall we would rate the newspaper condition as very good and one of the best we've ever seen. Minor typical overall toning after all these years.

If you are looking for a fine example of this rare newspaper to display in an office, library or den and impressions are important, then this is a marvelous opportunity to acquire this rare newspaper - new professional matting and frame. Not the typical newspapers with big rips and tears you often see advertised.

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