Alexander Alekhine wins chess tournanment...

Item # 651194

January 07, 1937

THE NEW YORK TIMES, January 7, 1937

* Alexander Alekhine wins in chess
* International masters' tournament
* Russian and French chess grandmaster

The sport's section (page 26) has a two column heading: "Alekhine Wins First Chess Prize, With Fine Runner-Up at Hastings" with subhead and photo. (see) 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 44 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.
