June 2, 1948
THE NEW YORK TIMES, June 2, 1948
* First Arab-Israeli War cease-fire
* The War of independence
* Israel - Palestinians
The front page has a three column headline: "BOTH SIDES ACCEPT TRUCE, BUT ARAB NOTE IS DELAYED; ISRAEL ORDERS CEASE-FIRE" with subheads. More inside with related map and photo. (see) 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 60 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.
