Death of beloved blind hymnist Fanny Crosby...

Item # 673543

February 13, 1915

THE NEW YORK TIMES, Feb. 13, 1915 

* Death of hymnist Fanny Crosby
* "Blessed Assurance", "Pass Me Not, O Gentle Saviour", "To God Be The Glory", etc.

Page 9 has: "FANNY CROSBY, BLIND HYMN WRITER DIES", with subheadings: "Author of More Than 8,000 Gospel Songs Passes Away in Her 95th Year", "Showed Talent at Eight", and ""Composed Safe in the Arms of Jesus in 15 Minutes...". The article takes nearly an entire column.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day are also present.
Complete in 14 pages, loose at the left spine with small margin binding holes (typical), somewhat fragile, but unusually good for the era. Still, should be handled with care.
