Item # 642318
February 22, 1928
THE NEW YORK TIMES, February 22, 1928
* Nikola Tesla's helicopter-plane patent
* Father of Radio Physics & more
Page 18 has a one column headings: "TESLA GETS PATENTS ON HELICOPTER-PLANE" "Wireless Experimenter Says His Invention Is Ideal for Air Flivver" (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 44 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.
