Item # 639150

August 23, 1939

THE NEW YORK TIMES, August 23, 1939

* The Wizard of Oz
* First week advertisement
* Judy Garland and more

Page 19 has an historic advertisement in early film history. See photos for a 7 x 2 inch ad for the first week of "The Wizard of Oz" in New York City, which was the first major city to show this movie making this issue rare as such. (see)
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day throughout with reporting on the tensions in pre World War II Europe. Complete in 42 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. Very nice condition.
