Jack Sharkey Defeats Max Schmeling... Nikola Tesla....



Item # 626030

June 22, 1932

THE NEW YORK TIMES, June 22, 1932

* Jack Sharkey vs. Max Schmeling
* Heavyweight boxing championship fight
* Nikola Tesla - father of radio


The front page has none column headings that include: "70,000 SEE SHARKEY OUTPOINT SCHMELING TO WIN WORLD TITLE", "Boston Heavyweight Triumphs Over German in 15 Rounds in New Bowl", "OFFICIALS VOTE 2 TO 1" and more (see) Much, much more on pages 28 & 29 with headlines, photos and round by round coverage. Loads of text, too much to photograph here. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication, especially here as the fight was at Madison Square Garden.
Page 12 has a one column heading: "TESLA, INVENTOR, 75, ATTACKS DRY LAW" and more.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 46 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.
