Very Rare WASHINGTON TERRITORY Seattle West Coast Alaska Times 1871 Newspaper


eBay Fixed Price Item # 391491325937

Shown is an original & historic old newspaper, offered to enhance your collectible interest: THE ALASKA TIMES, Seattle, Washington Territory, May 14, 1871 * Very rare W.T. issue This paper had moved to Seattle in 1870 and continued published under the same title despite no longer being in Alaska. Oswald's "Printing In The Americas" reports: "...he moved it to Seattle where he published two numbers only...", however I've had about a dozen issues all with different dates. Truly a rare item. An article on the front page is the census report on Alaska, which did not reflect very kind reporting of the people (see). Some foxing, irregular at the spine, some archival mended tears plus other margin tears. A very rare title from this early year.
