Item # 692760

September 14, 1937

THE NEW YORK TIMES, September 14, 1937

* Thomas Garrigue Masaryk death (1st report)
* Czechoslovakia founder & 1st President

The front page has a one column heading: "MASARYK IS DEAD; FOUNDED A NATION" with subheads. First report coverage continues on page 23 with photo. (see) Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this famous New York City publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 48 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.
