The front page has a nice banner headline: "NAZI SUBMARINE SINKS BRITISH PLANE CARRIER" with subhead and photo. (see) Nice for display. First report coverage on the torpedo attack on the HMS Courageous in the opening weeks of World War II with the lost of more than 500 of her crew.
Complete with 30 pages, small archival mend along the right margin, some small binding holes along the spine, generally very nice.
