1932 Alexander Winton death
Item # 688326
June 23, 1932
THE NEW YORK TIMES, June 23, 1932
* Alexander Winton death (1st report)
* Winton Motor Carriage Company founder
* Scottish-American bicycle & automobile inventor
Page 21 has a one column heading: "ALEXANDER WINTON, AUTO PIONEER, DEAD" with subheads. (see) He formed one of the very first American companies to sell a motor car. I suspect this is one of the few publications to report this particular event as other titles in our inventory do not.
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.
