Trio of issues on the Abdication of the King of England...
Item # 661874
December 10, 1936
TAUNTON DAILY GAZETTE, Massachusetts, a trio of issues dated Dec. 10, 11 & 12, 1936
* King Edward VIII abdication (3 issues)
* Wallis Simpson, Duchess of Windsor
* King George VI (Duke of York) takes over
The banner headline on each: "ABDICATION OF KING IS FORMALLY ANNOUNCED" with photos of his successor, Prince Albert & Elizabeth, Duchess of York; "Albert Becomes King as Abdication Is Approved" and "GEORGE PROCLAIMED KING" with a photo of Prince Albert.
Nice trio of issues on perhaps the most noted royal "scandal" of the 20th century.
Each issue complete, all 3 still bound together, light toning and minor wear at the margins, generally very nice.
