* 2 issue set - 1st & 2nd day reporting
* Charles Lindbergh, Jr.

This kidnapping would become known as the 'crime of the (20th) century', mostly due to the popularity of the father who had made one of the most historic flights in aviation history just a few years earlier.

The March 2nd issue has a full banner headline: "KIDNAPPERS' TRAIL VAGUE", with subhead: "Search made in 3 states for Lindbergh baby". The article continues on an inside page. Additionally, a photo captioned: "Kidnapped Baby and His Mother" is present.
Complete in 12 pages, light toning with more at the edges, a few small edge tears, partially loose at the spine, quite fragile & must be handled carefully. For the era, the condition is typical.

The front page of the March 3rd paper has the full banner heading: "WAY CLEAR FOR KIDNAPPER", with several subheads including, "ROADS NEAR LINDBERGH'S HOME ARE UNOBSTRUCTED". This article continues on an inside page. Additionally, a photo of the baby kicking a ball captioned, "Victim of Heartless Crime"  is present.
Complete in 16 pages, light toning with more at the edges, a few small edge tears, partially loose at the spine, quite fragile & must be handled carefully. For the era, the condition is typical.
