The front page has a five column headline: "U. S. ARMY REPELS JAPANESE ON GUADALCANAL; FLIERS SINK 2 DESTROYERS, HIT A BATTLESHIP, BUT FOE'S SEA FRONT OFF ISLAND IS UNBROKEN" with subheads. (see) Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day with much on World War II. Complete in 46 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.
