* SS Principessa Mafalda sinking
* Italian transatlantic ocean liner
The top of the front page has a two column heading: "Italian Liner Sinks Off Brazil; Heavy Loss of Life Is Feared" with subhead. (see) First report coverage on the sinking of the SS Principessa Mafalda, Italian transatlantic ocean liner. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete with all 60m 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. A little spine wear, otherwise in very nice condition.
