Item # 643234
October 16, 1930
THE NEW YORK TIMES, October 16, 1930
* Hermann Gollancz death (1st report)
* British Rabbi & Hebrew scholar
Page 25 has a one column heading: "HERMANN GOLLANCZ, JEWISH LEADER, DIES" with subheads. (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 52 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 irregular along the spine, nice condition..
wikipedia notes: Sir Hermann Gollancz was a British rabbi and Hebrew scholar. Gollancz was the first Jew to earn a doctor of literature degree from London University and the first holder of the degree to be ordained as a rabbi. He was the first British rabbi to be granted a knighthood, when he was knighted in 1923.
