* Columbia TN Tennessee
Near the bottom of the front page is a two column heading: "Negro, Freed by Court, Hanged in Tennessee; Lynching Handled Quietly, Sheriff Says" First report coverage on the lynching of Cord Cheek , Negro, in Columbia, Tennessee. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 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. Some light creasing, a little residue along the spine from disbinding, generally nice.
