Item # 646757
June 6, 1931
THE NEW YORK TIMES, June 6, 1931
* Al 'Scarface' Capone
* Income tax evasion indictment
* 1st report - the beginning of the end
Page 4 has one column headlines on that include: "CAPONE IS INDICTED IN INCOME TAX CASE" "Gangster Surrenders and Posts Bail on Charge of Evening Payment of $215,080"
"FACES FIVE-YEAR TERM" and more. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 38 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.
