Item # 629358
January 2, 1929
THE NEW YORK TIMES, January 1, 1929
* Franklin D. Roosevelt inauguration
* Governor of New York
The front page has a three column headline: "ROOSEVELT TAKES THE OATH AS GOVERNOR; CROWDS GATHER FOR INAUGURATION TODAY; REPUBLICANS OUTLINE THEIR PROGRAM" with various related subheads. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 64 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 little spine wear, generally nice.
