January 9, 1942

THE NEW YORK TIMES, January 9, 1942

* Joe Louis (The Brown Bomber) vs. Buddy Baer
* Heavyweight boxing title fight (pre-fight news)


The sport's section (page 26) has a banner headline: "Louis 1-7 Favorite Over Buddy Baer in Charity Contest at Garden Tonight" with subheads, photos and tale of the tape chart. This would be Joe Louis' 20th defense for the World's heavyweight title. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 42 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. Very nice condition.
