Dame Clara Butt death.. contralto singer...
Item # 642307
January 24, 1936
THE NEW YORK TIMES, January 24, 1936
* Clara Butt death (1st report)
* English contralto - concert singer
The top of page 19 has a one column heading: "DAME CLARA BUTT, CONCERT STAR, DIES" with subheads and photo. (see) I suspect this is one of the few publications to report this particular event as other titles in our inventory do not.
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.
