June 13, 1946

THE NEW YORK TIMES, June 13, 1946

* 1946 Italian institutional referendum

The top of the front page has a one column heading: "FULL RULE OF ITALY GIVEN TO PREMIER; HUMBERT SNUBBED" with subheads. (see) Report continues on page 3 with a few related photos.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 46 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.
