THE NEW YORK TIMES, February 15, 1928
* H. H. Herbert Henry Asquith death
* 1st Earl of Oxford and Asquith
* Liberal Prime Minister of United Kingdom
The top of the front page has a one column heading: "LORD ASQUITH DIES ON ENGLISH ESTATE; PREMIER 8 YEARS" with subheads and photo. (see) Lengthy 1st report coverage continues inside. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 48 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. A little spine wear, nice condition.
