THE NEW YORK TIMES, October 14, 1942
* Battle of Cape Esperance
* Savo Island, Guadalcanal
* World War II - WWII
The front page has a six column headline: "6 ENEMY SHIPS SUNK IN SOLOMONS BATTLE; LANDINGS IS BALKED; MARINES EXTEND HOLD; CONGRESS TO LOWER DRAFT AGE THIS WEEK" with subheads and related map. First report coverage on the Battle of Cape Esperance and Savo Island, Guadalcanal. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 46 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.
