September 6, 1937

THE NEW YORK TIMES, Sept. 6, 1937

The top of the front page has a three column headline: "JAPAN OPENS BIG OFFENSIVE ON WHOLE SHANGHAI FRONT; CHINESE LINES HOD FIRMLY" with subheads. (see)
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. Very nice condition.
