The front page has a one column heading: "DIAMOND CASE GOES TO THE JURY TODAY" with subheads. (see) Lengthy text continues on page 14. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication, especially on this topic.
Other news and advertisements of the day. Complete in 28 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.
