THE DETROIT NEWS, December 3, 1947
* Jerusalem riots
* Arabs - Muslims
The front page has a great banner headline: "MOBS RIOT IN JERUSALEM; ARABS GRAB MILLION LOOT" with subheads. (see) First report coverage on the 1947 Jerusalem riots. Nice for display.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 44 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. Minor spine wear, nice condition.
