NEW YORK WORLD-TELEGRAM, November 13, 1941
* Abe Reles death - Murder Inc. hitman
* "The Canary Who Could Sing, But Couldn't Fly."
The front page has a great banner headline: "RELES OF MURDER, INC., KILLED IN PLUNGE TRYING TO ESCAPE" with subheads and related photo. Nice for display. First report coverage on the death (murder?) of feared hitman for Murder Inc., Abe Reles.
Complete with all 42 pages, light toning at the margins, small library stamp within the masthead, small binding holes along the spine, a few archival mends along the right blank margin, generally nice.
