Charles W. Chesnutt death...
Item # 663702
November 16, 1932
THE NEW YORK TIMES, November 16, 1932
* Charles W. Chesnutt death
* African American author
* Post Civil War South
Page 17 has a one column heading: "C. W. CHESNUTT, NEGRO AUTHOR, DIES" with subheads and photo. (see) First report coverage on the death of Charles W. Chesnutt, African American author and political activist. 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 38 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.
