The top of page 7 has a two column heading: "Manolete, 30, Dies After Goring by Bull; All Spain Mourns Her Greatest Matador" with photo of Manolete. (see) First report coverage on the goring and death of Spain's most famous bullfighter, Manolete. See images for text here. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 28 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.
