* Republican Party
The front page has a nice banner healdine: "DEWEY UNANIMOUS REPUBLICAN CHOICE FOR PRESIDENT ON THE THIRD BALLOT; RUNNING MATE WILL BE NAMED TODAY" with many subheads and photo of Dewey. Much more inside. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 48 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.
