Rudyard Kipling death... English writer...
Item # 642298
March 18, 1936
THE NEW YORK TIMES, January 18, 1936
* Rudyard Kipling death (1st report)
* English writer, poet and Novelist
* "The Jungle Book" fame
The top of the front page has a one column heading: "RUDYARD KIPLING DIES AT AGE OF 70; CONSCIOUS AT END" with subheads. (see) Much more on page 7 with a few related photos. Loads of text. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 32 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.
