THE NEW YORK TIMES, November 22, 1935

* China Clipper airplane flight to start today
* 1st Trans-Pacific airmail commercial service

The top of page 3 has a one column heading: "CLIPPER OFF TODAY ON PACIFIC MAIL HOP" with subheads and related map. (see) Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous 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.

(added after the original catalog went to print and is only available on-line)
