Phar Lap's death cause revealed...

Item # 659087

April 15, 1932

THE NEW YORK TIMES, April 15, 1932

* re. Phar Lap's death
* Natural causes determined ?
* Australian racehorse

The sport's section (page 26) has one column heading: "FINDS PHAR LAP DIED OF NATURAL CAUSES" with subhead. (see) 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 40 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.
