Curiously Gregory only records the weekly edition, not the daily, the former being held by just one institution with reasonable holdings. Several other institutions have but a few scattered issues. Mokelumne Hill was one of the richest gold mining towns in California. Founded in 1848, the placers were so rich that the miners risked starvation rather than head to Stockton to replenish their supplies. Soon after, gold was discovered in the nearby hills, so much so that miners were restricted to claims of 16 sq. ft., and yet many of those... See More

eBay Fixed Price Item # 392815361516

Offered is an original, historic, & collectible old newspaper: THE SUN, Gunnison, Colorado, Dec. 29, 1883 This would seem to be an unrecorded title as Union List of Serials notes a "Sun" newspaper beginning in Sept., 1893 and lasting just one year. But I suspect the listing is in error and should have noted an n1883 beginning as this is the vol. 1 number 14 issue. In any case very rare as only one institution has any issues of this title recorded. Gunnison is in Central Colorado and boomed with mining and cattle ranching in the 1870's.
