THE NEW YORK TIMES, January 9, 1931
* Pope Pius XI
* Casti connubii
* Papal encyclical
The front page has a tw column headline: "POPE PIUS XI, IN ENCYCLICAL, CONDEMNS TRIAL MARRIAGE, DIVORCE AND BIRTH CONTROL" with subheads. (see) Full text of the papal encyclical takes up pages 14 & 15 with photo of Pope Pius XI. Too much to photograph all.
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. Nice condition.
