Item # 644651
February 26, 1948
THE NEW YORK TIMES, February 26, 1948
* Communists take over Czechoslovakia
* Czechoslovak coup d'etat
* Soviet Union - Russia
The front page has a three column headline: "U.S., BRITAIN, FRANCE CONDEMN COMMUNIST COUP IN PRAGUE; NEW REGIME TIGHTENS GRIP" with many subheads. (see) Much more on pages 2 & 3 with related photo. 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.
