Hindenburg airship makes it's debut...
Item # 645961
March 5, 1936
THE NEW YORK TIMES, March 5, 1936
* Hindenburg - LZ-129 zeppelin 1st flight
* Lakehurst, New Jersey disaster fame
Page 23 has one column headings that include: "TRIAL FLIGHT MADE BY NEW ZEPPELIN" "LZ-129 Behaved Perfectly on Three-Hour Trip Over Lake Constance, Officials Say" and more. (see) First report coverage on the very 1st flight of the infamous airship. 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 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.
