THE NEW YORK TIMES, June 18, 1929
* Alexander Alekhine wins chess tournament
* Russian and French chess grandmaster
The sport's section (page 34) has a one column heading: "ALEKHINE, IN 54 MOVES, VICTOR OVER MARSHALL" with subhead. (see) 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 64 pages, light toning and minor wear at the margins, generally very nice.
