BK-119. WAR OF 1812 ERA U.S. NEWSPAPERS.

This item is listed for historical interest only. It is not for sale.
Item #5545

These are Boston’s “Columbian Centinel,” Massachusetts’s Federalist Newspaper and date from 1811. This was the period leading up to the war. Each paper is approximately 19 ¾” x 14” and is four pages long (complete). Condition is surprisingly good for a disposable item made almost 200 years ago. There will be tattering around the edges however they are basically intact and readable. The paper used has a high rag content so it is not brittle. Each has a handwritten (in ink) name of the subscriber on the front top left corner. Content covers local, national and European (mainly England related) news. Most will have shipping news (example: for Baltimore- the good sloop “Friendship,” Wilson Knapp, master, will sail with all convenient dispatch- For freight or passage apply to Adams & Wood, No.1 D Spears Wharf.”) The advertisements are great- my favorite: “Young married woman with a good breast of milk and good recommendations, wishes to go into a family to nurse a child...” These are extremely interesting and make a great gift- what was happening on your birthday 196 years ago…? TYPICAL EXAMPLE IS SHOWN. OUR CHOICE
