THE NEW YORK TIMES, July 4, 1931

* Heavyweight boxing title fight
The front page has a one column heading: "SCHMELING IS VICTOR ON KNOCKOUT IN 15TH" with subheads. (see) Lengthy coverage continues in the sport's section 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 30 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.
