The front page has a nice four column headline: "WILKINS SAW ONLY MOUNTAINOUS ICE WHERE HE HOPED FOR LAND IN ARCTIC; CLOUDS HID ONE SPOT WHERE IT MIGHT BE" with subheads. (see) Lengthy text continues on page 2 with related map. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 52 pages, a little irregular along the spine, nice condition.
