"Prince" Michael Romanoff arrested...

Item # 648318

December 29, 1932

THE NEW YORK TIMES, December 29, 1932 

* Michael "Prince" Romanoff arrested
* Hollywood restaurateur, actor & conman
* Harry F. Gerguson - Beverly Hills restaurant

The top of the front page has a two column heading: "'Prince Mike' Seized Near Fifth Av. Shop; Trapped by His Taste for Costly Tobacco" Lengthy text. 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 40 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.
