1949 Israel-Egypt Armistice Agreement...
Item # 632029
February 24, 1949
THE NEW YORK TIMES, February 24, 1949
* Israel-Egypt Armistice Agreement
* Mandatory Palestine - Al-Faluja
The top of the front page has a two column headline: "ISRAEL AND EGYPT REACH ARMISTICE, WILL SIGN TODAY" with subheads. Continues inside with complete text of the agreement and related map. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
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.
