The front page has a one column heading: "HITLER IS READY TO SEIZE POWER BY ARMED FOLRCE" with subheads. (see) First report coverage on Adolph Hitler's Nazi movement rally at Brusnwick, Germany.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 18 pages, light toning and minor wear at the margins, generally nice.

wikipedia notes: This was a joint rally of Sturmabteilung (SA) and Schutzstaffel (SS) men put on to show both strength in strife-weary Germany and loyalty to their leader, Adolf Hitler. This was before Hitler came to national power as Chancellor of Germany in January, 1933. Over 100,000 men attended the (Braunschweig) Brunswick rally hosted by SA-Gruppe Nord under the leadership of then SA-Gruppenführer Viktor Lutze. At the rally, the SA assured Hitler of their loyalty and Hitler in turn increased the size of the SA with the creation of 24 new Standarten (regiment-sized formations).
