Herbert Hoover's presidential nomination...

Item # 679191

June 15, 1928

THE NEW YORK TIMES, June 15, 1928

* Herbert Clark Hoover nominated for President
* 1928 Republican National Convention

The front page has a very nice banner headline:  "HOOVER NAMED ON FIRST BALLOT BY 837; LOWDEN SECOND WITH 74; CURTIS GETS 64; FARMERS SQUELCHED ON FLOOR, 807 TO 277" with subheads and photo.  Much more on the following pages. Loads of text. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 52 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. A little irregular along the spine, nice condition.
