Al Capone freed from prison....



Item # 626066

November 17, 1939

THE NEW YORK TIMES, November 17, 1939

* Al 'Scarface" Capone freed from prison
* Chicago gangster becomes a free man


The top of the front page has a two column heading: "Al Capone Is Freed From Prison; Guarded in Baltimore Hospital" with subhead. (see) First report coverage continues on page 3 with a photo of Capone leaving the penitentiary in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 44 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.
