1948 Bogotazo...

Item # 650384

April 10, 1948

THE NEW YORK TIMES, April 10, 1948

* Bogota, Colombia riot
* Mariano Ospina Perez

* Jorge Eliecer Gaitan

The front page has a five column headline: "COLOMBIA BATTLES LEFTIST MOBS BURNING AND LOOTING THE CAPITAL; INTER-AMERICAN PARLEY  IS HALTED" with many subheads and two related photos. More inside. Loads of text. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 30 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.
