John Steinbeck - Grapes of Wrath in 1940...

Item # 649537

May 7, 1940

THE NEW YORK TIMES, May 7, 1940 

* John Steinbeck's "Grapes of Wrath" 
* Pulitzer Prize winner

The top of the front page has a two column heading: "Pulitzer Prize Is Awarded To 'The Grapes of Wrath" with subhead. (see) More on page 20 with photo of Steinbeck. 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 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. Very nice condition.
