1 Read, Simon War of Words: a True Tale of Newsprint and Murder
This is about a historical, true crime. When a gun-toting newspaper publisher collided with a hellfire preacher whose lust for the ladies equaled his craving to be mayor, sparks and bullets flew - with the citizens of San Francisco caught in the fire. Charles de Young, co-founder of the newspaper that was to become the San Francisco Chronicle, wrote in the inaugural issue: A new era has commenced in the history of the Chronicle, which today enters upon a higher and wider sphere. We propose to publish what will prove a novelty in S. F. Journalism - a bold, bright, fearless and truly independent newspaper. We shall be independent in all things, neutral in nothing. . . . But we propose to attack no individual unnecessarily. Pages (i - x) , 1-309, and includes a bibliography, notes, and index. The jacket is approximately 5/8 of the book, showing the pictorial cover underneath. ; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall
