New Series No. 13 (1893-05-01); Worlds' Fair Edition

The Printers' Review. New Series, No. 13 (1 May 1893). "[Chicago] World's Fair Edition." 12pp incl. covers. This has been scanned by Stephen O. Saxe from a copy in his collection. There is a small cutout section on pp. 10-11, but it is otherwise in good condition for its age.

Aside: The address of Golding & Co.'s Chicago offices, 45 Plymouth Avenue, became 423 South Plymouth after the 1911 renumbering of downtown Chicago streets. This location was across from the Old Colony Building (which still stands); it is now occupied by the Harold Washington Library Center (the main branch of the Chicago Public Library).
