First Woman to fly the Atlantic...



Item # 628610

June 6, 1928

THE NEW YORK TIMES, June 6, 1928 

* Woman aviator Amelia Earhart
* About to make history
* Airplane "Friendship"


Less than 13 months after Charles Lindbergh's heralded accomplishment, Amelia Earhart became the first woman to achieve the feat. The front page has a three column headline: "EARHART PLANE POISED FOR OCEAN DASH" with subheads. (see) Lengthy text continues inside. Weather would delay her from finishing the journey for about 2 weeks. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 52 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. A few small binding slits, very nice condition.
