The front page has a nice banner headline: "ZEPPELIN SAFE AT LAKEHURST AFTER 111-HOUR FLIGHT; SOARS OVER THE WHITE HOUSE AND THEN OVER NEW YORK; MOORED TO MAST TILL WIND DROPS AT 2 A.M.; NOW IN HANGAR" with subheads and related photo. (see) Much more on pages 2 through 6 including a nice full page pictorial. Too much to photograph here. Great to have in this famous New York City publication.
Complete with 64 pages, light toning, small tape mend at the lower right corner, a little spine wear, generally good and nice for display.
