COPY OF THE ILLUSTRATED NEWSPAPER 'THE SPHERE' FROM 1914

DESCRIPTION -- Old item dated 1914 and is a rare very find. It is a newspaper entitled The Sphere and covers many interesting articles of the time. Early newspaper items such as this are very collectable (click on the picture for an open out view of the inside).
[ONLY 1 AVAILABLE]

CONDITION -- Very Good

HISTORY -- The Sphere (full title: The Sphere: An Illustrated Newspaper for the Home) was a British newspaper, published weekly from 27 January 1900 until the closure of the paper on 27 June 1964; the first issue came out at the height of the Boer War and was no doubt a product of that conflict and the public appetite for images. At the time, it was in direct competition with The Graphic and Illustrated London News, and evidence of this rivalry can be seen in the latter's publication shortly after of a new illustrated paper entitled The Spear in an attempt to confuse readers.
