Title:Denver Rocky MountainNews, March 1951
Format: Tabloid, 7 days per week, weekday papers40-60 pages per issue, Sundays 90+ pages.
Binding Type/Condition: Clothbound, in good condition
Paper Condition: Paper quality is good, evenly toned.
Remarks: Denver is famous for sensational journalism, and this paper was no exception. Lots of juicy world, national and local stories.
This month the biggest stories are from Korea, where the Yanks are pushing the Communistsover the 38th parallel in intense fighting. Other big stories include Truman considering a Senate run, scientists claim that a rocket to Venus is possible with U2 technology, mobster Frank Costello faces Congress, and the Red ScareCongress has Hollywood in its sights.
Locally, the biggest stories (other than the News' endless fascination with gory car accidents) are that atomic spieshave used Denver as a meeting place, and the construction of the Rocky Flats Nuclear Plant is announced -- "to be rushed" it says, and Denverites know how that eventually turned out.
In sports the big stories are the Joe Walcott - Ezzard Charles heavyweight boxing championship, a widespread game-fixing scandal involving referees hits college basketball, and the Major Leaguers are back in action for spring training.
Movie pages are good, and advertising, as always in the News, is plentiful.
Daily comics include Sandy Hill, Wash Tubbs, Abbie an' Slats, Alley Oop, Bugs Bunny, Ella Cinders, Out Our Way, Our Boarding House, Ferdnand, Li'l Abner, Nancy, Boots and her Buddies, Little Sport, Carnival, and debuting in the News during this month, Charles Schulz' Peanuts -- really early for this strip which had VERY few clients at the time.
No Sunday comics or color magazine sectionswere bound into the volume.
This description is based only on a general review of the bound volume -- I did not examine every page. Although I assume every date is in the volume, and that the condition and clipping is fairly represented, please keep in mind that I did not spend hours examining the volume in minute detail. If you would like more information about some specific aspect of the bound volume I'll be glad to check and answer questions as best I can.
Shipping Weight: 15 pounds
Shipping: I'm always glad to combine shipping on multiple bound volumes, and you'll often find you save quite a bit. However, it is usually impractical to ship more than 3 volumes in one box (2 if they're really large ones), so keep in mind that there is a practical limit to what can be sent in a single shipment.
If you'd like a combined shipping quote before offerding, just let me know what you want to offer on, your address, and I'll get back to you with the cost.
Local pickup here in Tavaresis welcomed, but payment is expected through . Just contact me and we can schedule a time for pickup.
Sorry, I don't ship UPS. Also sorry about not offering international shipping on bound volumes. Usually I'm happy to ship internationally, but because these bound volumes are large and heavy, both the cost and the paperwork involved are pretty ridiculous. If you really, REALLY want to offer and you are outside the U.S., send me a message and I'll see what I can do.
Returns: Sorry, no returns on bound volumes. I believe I have described them adequately, and if you have questions or concerns, I will do my best to answer them for you before you offer. If you still have reservations about wanting the bound volume, please don't offer.
