April 17, 1931

THE NEW YORK TIMES, April 17, 1931

* Giuseppe 'Joe The Boss' Masseria
* Genovese crime family mob boss founder
* Assassination - murder


Page 17 has a one column heading: "POLICE MYSTIFIED IN SLAYING OF 'BOSS'" with subheads. (see) Coverage on the assassination of early Mafia boss, Joe Masseria in New York City. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication, especially on this topic.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 48 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 few binding slits along the spine, nice condition.
