Item # 633220
January 21, 1933
THE NEW YORK TIMES, January 21, 1933
* Antonio Scotti very last performance
* Italian baritone from Naples, Italy
* Ends career at Metropolitan Opera "The Met"
The front page has a one column heading: "SCOTTI ENDS CAREER IN A GREAT TRIUMPH" with subheads. (see) Lengthy first report coverage continues inside with photo. 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 32 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.
