Item # 638083
November 15, 1934
THE NEW YORK TIMES, November 15, 1934
* Battle of Highbury
* FIFA World Cup match
* England vs. Italy soccer
* Arsenal Stadium
The sport's section (page 30) has a one column heading: "ENGLAND TRIUMPHS AT SOCCER, 3-2" with subheads and lineups. (see) I suspect this is one of the few publications to report this particular event as other titles in our inventory do not.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 44 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 spine wear, nice condition.
