Description

The listing, 184 year old news paper The National Intelligence - dated June 11, 1834 - Free Shipping! has ended.

Step back in time TWO CENTURIES by reading this Tuesday, June 11, 1834, edition of The National Intelligence. This was a newspaper located in Washington DC. This is the entire newspaper not just clippings. It is 4 pages long on 2 sheets of 5 columns of tiny print. This was the typical style of that era.

Newspapers printed after 1799 and prior to 1860 are considered "Antebellum Papers" and were printed on naturally acid free "rag linen" paper so they held up much better than our newspapers of today. There are no illustrations but that is also typical of this era of Antebellum papers since illustrations didn't become popular until several decades after this paper was printed.

This one is only slightly yellowed. It had been folded. It has been stored out of sunlight. There are no missing pieces and all editorial is present. The corner of the front page has a year as seen in the photos.

Overall this paper is a nearly pristine example of a 19th century pre-civil war era Washington DC publication.

This paper also has reward notices for runaway slaves as well as notices of captured black people. Keep in mind this was printed 3 decades before Emancipation.

There are also classified ads, advertisements with prices, and many fascinating articles.

It measures 21.5 by 18" (perfect for a poster frame so it won't be expensive to mount and display - no preserving needed since it was printed on acid free paper.

It will be shipped securely with tracking and insurance. It has been folded in the past and it will be shipped that way without causing a change in condition.

This is NOT a reprint or reproduction. This is an original pre-civil war newspaper from my own collection, GUARANTEED and one of the oldest that I plan to part with.

This is a true auction with a starting of zero. No GIN.
