THE NEW YORK TIMES, January 19, 1929
* Professor Albert Einstein
* Theory of Relativity extended
* Gravitation - Electromagnetism
Page 6 has a two column heading: "Einstein Is Amazed at Stir Over Theory; Holds 100 Journalists at Bay for a Week" I suspect this is one of the few publications to report this particular event as other titles in our inventory do not.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 36 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. A few small binding slits along spine, nice condition.
