Founding of the state of Israel... One of the best...
Item # 655086
May 14, 1948
THE RALEIGH TIMES, May 14, 1948
* Israeli Declaration of Independence
* Early, same day 1st report
The front page has a dramatic, historic, banner headline proclaiming: "JEWISH STATE IS PROCLAIMED," with the related and sensational subheading: "First Hebrew Nation In 2,000 Years." The coverage continues on an inside page. This is an extremely historic & desirable issue on the formal creation of the state of Israel. Note: This being a 1st-report (many newspapers did not report this event until the following day), not a lot of details are given, but first reports are always desirable.
Complete in 12 pages, a bit fragile with slightly rough margins, but otherwise quite good. See images for details.
