THE NEW YORK TIMES, July 21, 1932
* Preußenschlag "Rape of Prussia"

The top of the front page has a three column headline: "REICH SEIZES PRUSSIA, NAMES DICTATOR; ARMY OUSTS OFFICIALS AND RULES BERLIN; PAPEN ACTS UNDER HINDENBURG'S ORDERS"
with subheads. (see) Lengthy text continues on page 3 with a few photos of key figures. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 36 pages, this is the rare rag edition that was produced on very high quality newsprint, with a high percentage of cotton & linen content, allowing the issues to remain very white & sturdy into the present. Given the subscription cost, libraries & institutions rather than individuals were the primary subscribers of these high-quality editions. Nice condition.
