Serial killer & rapist Albert Fish on death row......

Item # 685667

November 27, 1935

THE NEW YORK TIMES, November 27, 1935

* Albert Fish on death row
* Serial killer, child rapist and cannibal
* "The Boogey Man" - "Gray Man"
* "Brooklyn Vampire" - "Werewolf of Wysteria"

The top of the back page (pg. 44) has a one column heading: "FISH DEATH SENTENCE IS UPHELD ON APPEAL" with subhead. (see) I suspect this is one of the few publications to report this particular event as other titles in our inventory do not, probably because he committed his crimes locally and didn't become somewhat famous until after his death. Rare as such.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 44 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.
