Item # 639947
June 26, 1935
THE NEW YORK TIMES, June 26, 1935
* Joe Louis (Brown Bomber)
* Heavyweight boxing fight
* vs. Primo Carnera
The top of the front page has a one column heading: "LOUIS KNOCKS OUT CARNERA IN SIXTH; 60,000 SEE FIGHT" with subheads. (see) Much more on page 24 with banner headline, photos and round by round description. Nice to have in this famous NYC title especially since the fight was held in Yankee Stadium.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 34 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.
