THE NEW YORK TIMES, March 6, 1935
* Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. death (1st report)
* Supreme Court of the United States
* Associate Justice
The top of the front page has a two column heading with photo: "Justice Holmes Succumbs To Pneumonia at Age of 93" with subhead. (see) Lengthy text continues inside with more photos. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 42 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.
