January 18, 1919
THE NEW YORK TIMES, January 18, 1919
* re. Prohibition (no beer, liquor) wins
* 18th Amendment ratification

The front page has a one column heading: PROHIBITION ISSUE UNDER LEGAL FIRE" with subheads. (see) Second report coverage on the ratification of the 18th amendment to the Constitution & causing Prohibition to take effect the next year. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 18 pages, even toning, a little irregular along the spine, minor margin wear, generally nice.
