May 15 Incident... Inukai Tsuyoshi...

Item # 631842

May 16, 1932

THE NEW YORK TIMES, May 16, 1932

* May 15 Incident - coup d'état attempt
* Imperial Japanese Navy & Army
* Inukai Tsuyoshi assassination

The top of the front page has a three column headline: "MILITARISTS KILL THE PREMIER IN TOKYO, BOMB BANKS, POLICE IN A DAY OF TERROR; SEVENTEEN IN UNIFORM THEN SURRENDER" with subheads. Lengthy 1st report coverage continues inside with a few related photos. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 34 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. Minor spine wear, nice condition.
