THE NEW YORK TIMES, May 18, 1920
* Jose Gomez Ortega (Joselito)
* Spanish matador death
* Bullfighting - Gored
Page 17 has one column headings: "ALL SPAIN MOURNS DEATH OF TOREADOR", "Noted Bullfighter Gallito, Killed Sunday Night, Left Fortune of $400,000" First report coverage on the goring and death of famous Spanish matador Jose Gomez Ortega, commonly known as Joselito. 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 32 pages, light toning, a little irregular along the spine, generally nice.
