February 2, 1931
THE NEW YORK TIMES, February 2, 1931
* Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi
* Civil Disobedience
* The Mahatma
The top of the front page has a one column heading: "GANDHI CHIEFS ORDER CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE TO CONTINUE IN INDIA" 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. Complete in 40 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.
