Item #639556THE COLUMBIAN MAGAZINE, Philadelphia, December, 1787 This title has the honor of being the first successful American magazine, having begun in September, 1786 and lasting until December, 1792.
The most notable content is actually the very rare foldout map titled: "A View of the Town of Boston, the Capital of New England" which measures 7 1/2 by 9 1/2 inches. Due to its desirabilit... See More

COOS REPUBLICAN, Lancaster, New Hampshire, July 14, 1863 Two-thirds of the front page & over one-third of page 2 are taken up with the: "Description of the Battle of Gettysburg" with tremendous detail on the battle. Great to have most of this on the front page.

May 10, 1780
THE NEW JERSEY GAZETTE, Trenton, May 10, 1780 Titles from New Jersey are very uncommon, particularly from the 18th century. Of greater significance is that this was the very first newspaper in New Jersey, having begun just 2 years prior in 1778.
The front page is taken up with reports from Europe, including a little chart headed: "The present American war has cost the following sums ab... See More
April 20, 1865
RICHMOND WHIG, Virginia, April 20, 1865 Once the capital of the Confederacy fell to the North in early April the Yankees also took over the press and continued printing newspapers. This is an early issue (#12) of this "union occupation" newspaper with page 4 coverage of Lincoln's assassination.
As noted in the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History website, the Whig was ... See More
Item #637273THE GENTLEMAN'S MAGAZINE, London, December, 1781 Certainly the most historic report in this issue--and perhaps in any issue from the Revolutionary War--is that near the back of the issue under the "Historical Chronicle". It begins with an editorial comment: "Gen. Washington's letter to the President of Congress on the surrender of the British army under Lord Cornwallis... See More
November 3, 1791
THOMAS'S MASSACHUSETTS SPY OR THE WORCESTER GAZETTE, Nov. 3, 1791 Over half of page 2 & a small part of pg. 3 are taken up with what was the third annual state-of-the-union address of the President, signed by him in type: G. Washington. This very historic message begins: "I meet you upon the present occasion with the feelings which are naturally inspired by a strong impression o... See More
November 3, 1948
CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE, Nov. 3, 1948 See the photos for what is arguably the most recognizable headline of the 20th century: "DEWEY DEFEATS TRUMAN". Even those not remotely knowledgeable about historic newspapers are familiar with this headline as it appeared in countless history books, historical reviews of the 20th century, and presidential campaign and election reports....

December 10, 1778
THE INDEPENDENT CHRONICLE & UNIVERSAL ADVERTISER, Boston, December 10, 1778 This is a particularly noteworthy issue as it may well be the very first American newspaper we have seen which prints the complete text of the "Treaties of Amity and Commerce, and of Alliance, Eventual and Defensive, between His Most Christian Majesty, and the Thirteen United States of America." This wa... See More
November 21, 1886
THE DAILY TOMBSTONE, Arizona, November 21, '86 (1886) This may well be the consummate "Old West town" much romanticized in movies and television shows, perhaps most famous for the gunfight at the OK Corral involving Wyatt Earp and the Clanton gang. I would almost suggest that this title is more rare than the Epitaph as we have received far fewer issues of this title during the ... See More
September 25, 1776
THE CONNECTICUT JOURNAL, New Haven, Sept. 25, 1776 The front page has an item mentioning: "It is said General Lee was taken...crossing a ferry to Virginia & that Lord Dunmore, who had information of his route...sent a frigate to watch it, who took him and 30 rifle barrel men..." [must be untrue as he was not captured until December]. Another item makes an interesting observatio... See More

THE NEW-YORK WEEKLY JOURNAL, May 27, 1734 This is a very curious item, being a book titled: "John Peter Zenger And His Fight For The Freedom of the American Press - Together With a Genuine Specimen of the New York Weekly Journal Printed by John Peter Zenger". The title page notes that "99 copies" were printed for Harry B. Weiss, Highland Park, New Jersey, 1934, the 200th ... See More
