May 14, 1948
NEW YORK POST, May 14, 1948 The front page could not be better, with nearly half taken up with a very dramatic: "PROCLAIM JEWISH NATION ! " dropped out of a black box. Also on the ftpg: "British Go--War, Say Arabs".
The coverage on pages 2, 3 and 76 is excellent with a banner headline: "Jewish Nation Is Proclaimed; State of War On, Arabs Say". Other heads: "And It Came to Pass--After 2,000 Years" "Hope U.S. Will Recognize Zion 1st" "Reborn Israel Asks Recogniation" "Reborn Israel Seeks World's Recognition" with 5 related photos including: "David Ben-Gurion" the Premier-designate. There is also a map headed: "Arabs Clsing In for Invasion".
Included is the full text of the: "Declaration of Independence" of the Jewish state.
A terrific issue, if for only that this report is a day earlier than most. Newspapers of April 15 were typically the editions which reported this notable event.
Complete in 80 pages, disbound, tabloid size so it lends itself nicely for display, a few small tape mends at margins, a date stamp in the masthead, very nice condition. Very small pinholes at the blank spine from disbinding.
