The sport's section (page 21) has a banner headline: "Crushing Attack by Schmeling Knocks Out Hamas in Ninth Round at Hamburg" with subheads and photo of Schmeling. (see) This was just over a year prior to his famous victory over Joe Louis. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 36 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.
