1935 Lawrence of Arabia motorcycle crash... near death...



Item # 681660

May 14, 1935

CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE, May 14, 1935 

* Lawrence of Arabia motorcycle accident (1st report) 
* Would die less than a week later
 

The front page has a one column heading: "Lawrence of Arabia Hurt in Bike Crash" with subhead. Photo of Lawrence is on page 3. (see) First report coverage of the motorcycle accident that would be fatal to Thomas Edward Lawrence, better known as Lawrence of Arabia. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 30 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. A few small binding holes along the spine.
