Gari Melchers death... American artist....

Item # 672859

December 01, 1932

THE NEW YORK TIMES, December 1, 1932

* Gari Melchers death
* American artist

Page 21 has a one column heading: "GARI MELCHERS, NOTED ARTIST, DEAD" with subheads and photo. (see) First report coverage on the death of Julius Garibaldi Melchers, American artist who was  one of the leading proponents of naturalism. 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 advertisement 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.
