Rare GUNNISON Colorado Volume 1 Number 14 Old West 1883 Original Newspaper


eBay Fixed Price Item # 391317553623

Shown is an original & historic old newspaper, offered to enhance your collectible interest: 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. An 8 page newspaper with a wide variety of news items, local tidbits and curious anecdotes. Rejoined at the spine, light toning at the margins, nice condition.
