The sport's section (page 13) has a three column headline: "Pennant Clinched by Yankees" with subheads that include: "YANKS CLINCH FLAG; DEFEAT TIGERS, 11-6" "Ruth Gets 53D Home Run" and more. Box scores as well. (see) Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication, especially on this topic.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 40 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 irregular along the spine, nice condition.
