THE NEW YORK TIMES, May 8, 1919
* L. Frank Baum death (1st report)
* "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" fame
Page 17 has a small one column heading: "L. Frank Baum Dead" with subhead. (see) Baum was known mostly with his children book "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" which was the basis for the famous 1939 movie. 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 at the margins, some creases on the front page, minor margin wear, otherwise good.
