Item # 696850

January 04, 1935

THE NEW YORK TIMES, January 4, 1935.
* Charles Lindbergh Jr. Baby Kidnapping Trial
* Mother and father take the stand
* Loads of court testimony

The top of the front page has a four column headline: "COL. AND MRS. LINDBERGH ON THE STAND; MOTHER IDENTIFIES BABY'S GARMENTS; FATHER SAYS HE HEARD LADDER CRASH" with subheads. (see) Much more inside with multiple pages of court testimony and a few related photos. Loads and loads of text here.
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. Minor spine wear, very nice condition.
