The top of the front page has a three column headline: "REBELS SHIFT THEIR ATTACK, THREATEN MADRID IN NORTH; TRY TO CUT VALENCIA ROAD" with subheads. (see) Coverage on the beginning of the Siege of Madrid. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 52 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.
