"Himmler Poisons Self," "B-29 Fires Sweep Tokyo, City Almost Razed, Japs Say; 70-Mile Wind Spreads Flames," The Daily News: New York's Picture Newspaper, May 25-28, 1945
(New York): (Daily News). 1945. First. One bound volume. Thick quarto. Contemporary full cloth, gilt lettered spine. Small owner's bookplate, the boards are moderately soiled and bumped, with an old stain at the lower right corner of the text pages, good. Contains multiple consecutive issues of all editions: (Pink, Final, and Home) issued on Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday: May 25-28, 1945. The volume contains a unique daily record of each variant printed edition, priced at 2 or 3 cents (5 cents on Sunday), issued over a four-day period near the end of World War II. On each day two or more editions were printed under two or more variant front cover headlines, a sampling of which follows: 1. "Himmler Poisons Self / Yank Troops Encircling Shuri; Fleet Pounds Okinawa Japs," 2. "Himmler Dies By Taking Hidden Poison," 3. "Himmler Dies By Poison As Escape Fails" (from Friday, May 25, 1945). 1. "4,000 Tons of Fire Bombs Rain On Tokyo," 2. "111 Jap Planes Downed, 11 U.S. Ships Hit," 3. "B-29 Fires Sweep Tokyo, City Almost Razed, Japs Say; 70-Mile Wind Spreads Flames" (from Saturday, May 26, 1945), and so on. The Sunday edition includes a "12 Pages Comic Section" (printed in color: Dick Tracy, Brenda Starr Reporter, Little Orphan Annie, Harold Teen, Moon Mullins, Winnie Winkle, Gasoline Alley, Smilin' Jack, Smokey Stover, The Ripples, The Gumps, Sweeny & Son, The Teenie Weenies, Terry and the Pirates), and a 32 page "Sunday News ColorRoto Section" that features a cover portrait of Franklin Roosevelt. All of the variant issues are complete as issued with the local, domestic, and other international news of the day, and with sports coverage (mostly of baseball) on the last page of each issue. A scarce survival. .
