THE NEW YORK TIMES, February 9, 1935
* Max Liebermann death
* German-Jewish painter
The top of page 16 has a one column heading: "MAX LIEBERMANN, ARTIST, DIES AT 87" with subheads and photo. (see) First report coverage on the death of Max Liebermann, German-Jewish painter and printmaker, and one of the leading proponents of Impressionism in Germany. I suspect this is one of the few publications to report this particular event as other titles in our inventory do not.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 32 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. A little spine wear, nice condition.
