Casey at the Bat death in 1943...

Item # 630683

February 10, 1943

THE NEW YORK TIMES, NY, February 10, 1943 

* Casey at the Bat death ? 
* Battle of Guadalcanal ends w/ victory

The front page has a four column headline: "GUADALCANAL IS OURS" with subheads and related map. Lengthy text.
Page 25: "'CASEY' CLAIMANT DEAD IN CAPITAL"  with subheads that include: "Daniel Casey, 80, Contended He Was Hero of Thayer's 'Casey at the Bat'" "Figure In Long Dispute" and more. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day throughout with much more 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.
