Item # 652817
December 2, 1943
THE NEW YORK TIMES, December 2, 1943
* Cairo Conference in Egypt

The front page has a nice banner headline: "CRUSHING OF JAPAN MAPPED AT CAIRO PARLEY; EMPIRE WILL BE STRIPPED TO PRE-1895 STATUS" with subheads that include: "ALL-OUT WAR SET" "PLEDGE FREE KOREA" and more with related photo. (see) First report coverage on the Cairo Conference in Egypt in which Japan was the main topic. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day with much more on World War II. Complete in 48 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.
