The front page one column headings: "MABEL NORMAND, FILM STAR, DEAD" "The Comedienne Succumbs to Turberculosis in California Sanitarium" and more. (see) Coverage continues inside with photo. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 44 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. Nice condition.
