Clyde Barrow Gang Machine Gun Fight In 1933...

Item # 626369

July 25, 1933

THE NEW YORK TIMES, July 25, 1933.

* Clyde Barrow Gang
* Machine Gun Battle
* Outlaws Bonnie & Clyde

Page 4 has a one column heading: "IOWA MACHINE GUNS ROUT BARROW GANG" with subheads that include: "Discovery of 'Wild West' Camp Brings on Battle in Which Three Outlaws Are Badly Wounded" and more. (see) First report coverage on the machine gun battle with police at their wooded hide-away in which Marvin Barrow and his wife, Blanche, were captured. Rare to find reports on Bonnie and Clyde prior to their deaths. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 40 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.
