Fine historic newspaper, the July 24, 1934 edition of the Chicago "Herald and Examiner", 24pp. folio, featuring numerous detailed articles and photos exhaustively describing the death of notorious gangster and bank robber John Dillinger, two days previous. The front page bears the enormous headline "Hunt Dillinger Hoard; Nelson Escapes Trap!", with the subtitle "Public Enemy No. 1 Pays His Debt". The page is further illustrated with an oversized photo of Dillinger on the coroner's table. Pages two and three are completely occupied by exhaustive reporting and photos related to Dillinger's career and the aftermath of his killing in an ambush outside a Chicago theater by federal agents, while the final page bears several additional large photos of his lifeless corpse. Shows slight toning, else very good.
