The Detroit News, founded by James E. Scripps in 1873 with the original masthead being "The Evening News." Due to downsizing and a recent move The Detroit News was forced to sell off part of their library. Written in pencil on the back of the title page is the name of the donor: Mrs. William E. Scripps. William E. Scripps was the son of James E. Scripps and one of the founders of WWJ Radio. Mrs. Scripps donated the book most likely in 1958 as the card in rear pocket indicates it was loaned to the "bindery" on Dec. 11 of that year. Newspaper bookplate on the front pastedown. A scarce book made even more desirable because it belonged to a member of Scripps' immediate family. FIRST EDITION.
