Item # 634619
February 23, 1933
THE NEW YORK TIMES, February 23, 1933
* Race driver Malcolm Campbell
* Bluebird car speed record
* Daytona Beach, Florida
The front page has a one column heading: "CAMPBELL DRIVES 272 MILES AN HOUR" with subheads. (see) First report coverage continues on page 10 with related photo. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 34 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.
