Item # 637443

May 31, 1934

THE NEW YORK TIMES, May 31, 1934

* Indianapolis 500 auto race 
* Bill Cummings wins (1st report)

The sport's section (page 26) has a banner headline: "135,000 See Cummings Capture Indianapolis Auto Race in Thrilling Finish" with subheads and photo. (see) First report coverage on the 1934 Indianapolis 500 race in which Bill Cummings was the winner. 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.  Nice condition.
