Death of Florenz Ziegfeld in 1932...

Item # 625802

July 23, 1932

THE NEW YORK TIMES, July 23, 1932 

* Broadway producer Florenz Ziegfeld death
* Impresario - Show Boat

The front page has a one column heading: "FLORENZ ZIEGFELD DIES IN HOLLYWOOD AFTER LONG ILLNESS" with subheads that include: "Leading Figure in New York Theater World Succumbs to Attack of Pleurisy" "Began Career in Chicago" and more. (see) First report coverage continues on page 6 with photo. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 26 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.
