Imperial Japanese Navy to grow ?

Item # 659101

October 27, 1934

THE NEW YORK TIMES, October 27, 1934

* Imperial Japanese Navy to expand ?
* Prelude to bombing of Pearl Harbor

The top of the front page has a two column heading: "JAPAN TAKES FIRM STAND FOR NAVAL EQUALITY NOW; 1935 PARLEY IS IMPERILED" with subheads. (see) Was this the prelude that would eventually lead to the bombing of Pearl Harbor 7 years later ?.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 32 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.
