THE NEW YORK TIMES, July 21, 1951
* King Abdullah I of Jordan
* Al-Aqsa Mosque assassination
* Old City of Jerusalem
The front page has a two column photo with heading: "Abdullah, Jordan King, Slain By an Arab in Old Jerusalem" Lengthy first report coverage continues on page 3 with 2 more related photos. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 28 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.
