THE NEW YORK TIMES, September 2, 1933
* Nuremberg Rally for Nazi Party
* Adolph Hitler speaks on Jewish art
The top of the front page has a one column heading: "NAZIS PLEDGE JOBS; HITLER PLACES ART ON A 'NORDIC' BASIS" with subheads. (see) Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 26 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.
wikipedia notes: At a Nazi Party rally in Nuremberg, Adolf Hitler announced that the time had come for "a new artistic renaissance of the Aryan human being", rejecting Jewish and Bolshevik forms of painting and sculpture, such as abstract art, cubism, Dadaism and surrealism.
