Item # 627965
July 12, 1938
THE NEW YORK TIMES, July 12, 1938.
* Aviator Howard Hughes
* Airplane flight around World
The top of the front page has two column headings: "Hughes Lands in Moscow; Flew to Paris In 161/2 Hours" "Keeps Up Fast Time on Second Leg of Round-the-World Flight--Repairs Delay Plane Eight Hours in France" with more on pages 2 & 3 which includes two photos and related map. 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.
