THE NEW YORK TIMES, August 23, 1922
* Michael Collins assassination
* Irish Republican Army leader
* Irish Free State
The top of the front page has a nice three column headline: "MICHAEL COLLINS SHOT DEAD IN AMBUSH; CHIEF OF THE IRISH FREE STATE SLAIN WHILE LEADING WAR ON REBELS IN CORK" with subheads and photo of Collins. Nice for display. (see) Lengthy 1st report coverage on the assassination of IRA leader, Michael Collins, continues on page 2. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete with all 32 pages, irregular along the spine, otherwise nice.
