The front page of the sport's section (inside) has a banner headline: "ASSAULT, 7-5, WINS BELMONT STAKES FOR TRIPLE CROWN" with subheads and a five column action photo and more. (see) First report coverage on Assault winning the triple crown in horse racing. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in a thick, 80+ page Sunday edition, 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.
