On the 1929 stock market crash, in the New York Times...

Item # 673554

November 01, 1929

THE NEW YORK TIMES, Nov. 1, 1929 

* The great stock market crash of 1929
* Best title to have in (NYC)

The stock market crash of 1929 did much to define America for the next decade, resulting in the Great Depression and all the trauma relating to it. It seemed common for many newspapers to put a positive spin on the on-going tragedy, so front page reports often conflicted with the reality of the time.
Given that the stock exchange is in New York City, the "Times" remains one of the most desired of all newspapers on the crash.
The top of the front page has a three column healdine: "Stocks Up Again On Flood Of Buying; Discount Rate Cut Here And In London; Back To Normal, Reserve Board Finds" plus many related subheads (see photos). And the many pages within provide a fascinating glimpse of life during those tumultuous weeks.
Complete in 52 pages, light toning, some margin wear, mainly along the spine with minimal text loss, generally good.
