Caribou Bill death... Yukon gold rush...

Item # 688615

November 03, 1933

THE NEW YORK TIMES, November 3, 1933

* Caribou Bill death
* Yukon gold rush
* Dog sled fame

The top of page 19 has a one column heading: "W. F. COOPER DEAD; FAMOUS IN YUKON" with subheads. (see) First report coverage on the death of William F. Cooper, known for his exploits in the gold region of Alaska. 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 42 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.
