The front page has a banner headline: "CHURCHILL PREDICTS HUGE ALLIED DRIVE IN 1943" with subheads and photo of Churchill. (see) Much more on the following pages with complete text of Churchill's address. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day with much more on World War II. Complete in 32 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.
