New York: 1943. Paperback. Uncommon bound compilation for July-September 1943 of the most important Yiddish newspaper of its time, the Daily Forward. The Forward is still published today as a weekly, both in Yiddish and English. According to the paper's website, the newspaper began as a Yiddish language daily in 1897. It became known as the voice of the Jewish immigrant and helped generations of immigrants enter American life. By the 1930s the paper had a circulation of over 275,000, but entered a period of decline after World War II. In 1983 it became a weekly and launched an English supplement. These issues from 1943 offer a fascinating view of the time. The War, of course, was intensely covered, and each issue has a number of photographs capturing events and people. The photos are captioned in both Yiddish and English. There are many ads in Yiddish throughout for products as familiar as Maxwell House Coffee and Coca Cola. Some issues included classified ads for resort hotels and other vacation spots. The oversized folio is bound in marbled paper with half linen spine. Interior pages are clean with some yellowing and aging, and a few tears in some because of brittle paper. Very heavy and extra postage will be required. JOUR/092308. Very Good.
