Death of Virginia Woolf...

Item # 661179

April 3, 1941

THE NEW YORK TIMES, April 3, 1941 

* Virginia Woolf death 
* Author, essayist 
* Suicide drowning 

Page 25 has one column headings: "VIRGINIA WOOLF BELIEVED DEAD" "Novalist Is Thought to Have Been Drowned Friday--Has Been Ill" with photo of Woolf. First report coverage on the suicide death of English author, Virginia Woolf. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 48 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. Very nice condition.
