Item # 674109
October 16, 1930
THE NEW YORK TIMES, October 16, 1930
* Hermann Gollancz death (1st report)
* British Rabbi & Hebrew scholar
Page 25 has a one column heading: "HERMANN GOLLANCZ, JEWISH LEADER, DIES" with subheads. (see) 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 advertisements of the day. Complete in 52 pages, light toning at the margins, a little irregular along the spine, generally good.
wikipedia notes: Sir Hermann Gollancz was a British rabbi and Hebrew scholar. Gollancz was the first Jew to earn a doctor of literature degree from London University and the first holder of the degree to be ordained as a rabbi. He was the first British rabbi to be granted a knighthood, when he was knighted in 1923.
