Pope Pius XII coronation...
Item # 647870
March 13, 1939
THE NEW YORK TIMES, March 13, 1939
* Eugenio Maria Giuseppe Giovanni Pacelli
* Pope Pius XII coronation
The top of the front page has a three column headline: "PIUS XII CROWNED ON BALCONY BEFORE VAST ROMAN THRONG; 4-HOUR SERVICE IMPRESSIVE" with subheads. (see) Much more on pages 2 & 3 with photos. 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 34 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.
