Item # 682834

August 02, 1937

THE NEW YORK TIMES, August 2, 1937

* Cunard liner SS Normandie
* Breaks speeds record
* Blue Riband - Atlantic Ocean

The front page has a one column heading: "NEW SPEED MARK SET BY NORMANDIE" with subheads. (see) First report coverage on the SS Normandie breaking the speed record for crossing the Atlantic Ocean . Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 34 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.
