THE NEW YORK TIMES, April 24, 1940
* Rhythm Club fire disaster (1st report)
* Natchez, Mississippi - Negroes
* Dance hall holocaust
The front page has a great banner headline: "100 DIE IN DANCE HALL FIRE" with subheads. Nice for display. First report coverage on the fire at the Rhythm Night Club which would kill 209.
Complete with all 34 pages, light toning at the margins, small library stamp within the masthead, small binding holes along the spine, generally nice.
