The great Kanto earthquake...



Item # 647224

September 2, 1923

THE NEW YORK TIMES, September 2, 1923

* The Great Kanto earthquake
* Tokyo and Yokohama Japan


The front page has a nice banner headline: "GREAT EARTHQUAKE AND FIRE RAVAGE TOKIO AND YOKOHAMA; MANY PERISH, BUILDINGS COLLAPSE; SURVIVORS FLEE IN PANIC" with subheads and related map. (see) First report coverage here. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news of the day. Complete 1st section only with all 24 pages, light even toning, irregular along the spine, otherwise generally good.
