THE NEW YORK TIMES, July 15, 1931
* Famous New York City gangster
* Jack 'Legs' Diamond
* Acquitted for torture (assault)
The front page has a one column heading: "DIAMOND ACQUITTED OF ASSAULT CHARGE" with subheads. (see) Lengthy text continues inside. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication, especially on this topic.
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. A little irregular along the spine, very nice condition.
