Samuel Reshevsky defeats Jose Capablanca......

Item # 674452

April 30, 1935

THE NEW YORK TIMES, April 30, 1935

* Samuel Reshevsky defeats Jose Capablanca
* Polish chess prodigy vs. Cuban chess grandmaster

The sport's section (page 23) has a three column heading: "Cuban Master Loses at Chess" with subheads that include: "RESHEVSKY VICTOR OVER CAPABLANCA" and more with photo. (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 38 pages, light toning, some archival mending, a little margin wear, partial label attached within the masthead, generally good.
