Item # 651103
February 17, 1933
THE NEW YORK TIMES, February 17, 1933
* 18th Amendment - prohibition
* Senate votes to repeal - 21st Amendment
The top of the front page has a two column headline: "SENATE VOTES DRY REPEAL BY CONVENTIONS IN STATES; HOUSE WILL ACT MONDAY" with subheads. Much more on page 13 including a banner headline and loads of text. (see) First report coverage on the United States Senate approving the repeal of prohibition. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
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. Light toning along the spine, nice condition.
