King George V funeral...
Item # 642305
January 29, 1936
THE NEW YORK TIMES, January 29, 1936
* George V funeral & burial
* King of the United Kingdom
The top of the front page has a two column headline: "GEORGE V IS BURIED WITH REGAL POMP AS NATION GRIEVES" with subheads. (see) Much more on page 9 with five related photos. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 40 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.
