Richard Byrd Flies To South Pole...
Item # 648023
November 30, 1929
NEW YORK TIMES, November 30, 1929.
* Richard Byrd 1st to reach South Pole
* Great 1st report in famous title
The front page has a nice banner headline: "BYRD SAFELY FLIES TO SOUTH POLE AND BACK, LOOKING OVER 'ALMOST LIMITLESS PLATEAU'; DROPS FOOD, LIGHTENS SHIP ON PERILIOUS TRIP" with many subheads. (see) Much more on pages 2 & 3 as with photo and illustration. 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 40 pages, irregular along the spine with a few staples, otherwise very nice.
