German battleship Bismarck launching...



Item # 642615

February 15, 1939

THE NEW YORK TIMES, February 15, 1939

* Battleship Bismarck launching
* Nazi Germany's Kriegsmarine
* Adolph Hitler ceremony speech

Page 4 has one column headings that include: "HITLER AT SHIP FETE DEPLORES INTRIGUE" "Lauds Iron Chancellor at the Launching of 35,000-Ton Warship Bismarck" and more. (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.
