The 31 January 1948 edition of ''The New York Times'' bearing the news of the assassination of Mohandas Gandhi. Front page headline reads, ''Gandhi is Killed by a Hindu; India Shaken, World Mourns; 15 Die in Rioting in Bombay''. Article covers the fatal shooting of Gandhi by Hindu extremist Nathuram Godse, plans for his funeral and the stricken nation's chaotic response. Issue runs 32pp. and measures 16.5'' x 22.75''. Toning, tear to upper left of first page and perforation to left edge from removal from a book of bound newspapers. Overall very good.
