THE NEW YORK TIMES, December 12, 1930
* Professor Albert Einstein
* Arrival in America (1st report)
* Pro-Zionism before rise of Hitler
The top of the front page has a one column heading: "EINSTEIN ON ARRIVAL BRAVES LIMELIGHT FOR ONLY 15 MINUTES" with subheads. (see) First report coverage on Albert Einstein's 2nd visit to America. Lengthy text continues inside with 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 52 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.
wikipedia notes: In December 1930, Einstein visited America for the second time, originally intended as a two-month working visit as a research fellow at the California Institute of Technology. After the national attention he received during his first trip to the U.S., he and his arrangers aimed to protect his privacy. Although swamped with telegrams and invitations to receive awards or speak publicly, he declined them all.
