Herbert Hoover Inaugural Address...
Item # 625788
March 5, 1929
NEW-YORK TIMES, March 5, 1929
* President Herbert Clark Hoover
* Inauguration - inaugural address
The front page has a very nice banner headline: "HOOVER INAUGURATED BEFORE THRONG OF 50,000 IN RAIN; PLEDGES EFFORT TO ENFORCE LAWS, AID WORLD PEACE; PARTING WITH COOLIDGE IS CLIMAX OF DAY'S CEREMONY" with many subheads and photo. (see) Much more inside with full page pictorial and text of the inaugural address. Loads of text. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 64 pages, this is the rare rag edition that was produced on very high quality newsprint, with a high percentage of cotton & linen content, allowing the issues to remain very white & sturdy into the present. Given the subscription cost, libraries & institutions rather than individuals were the primary subscribers of these high-quality editions. Nice condition.
