May 26, 1927
THE NEW YORK TIMES, May 26, 1927
* Aviator Charles Lindbergh
* Atlantic Ocean flight success
* Triumphal visits in France
The top of the front page has a four column headline: "FRENCH DEPUTIES ACCLAIM LINDBERGH AS MOST AUDACIOUS HERO OF CENTURY; 'PROPHET OF A NEW ERA,' SAYS BLEROIT" with many subheads and related photo. Loads of text continues on the following pages with another related photo. 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, 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.
