September 19, 1850
DAILY NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER, Washington, D.C., September 19, 1850 Being the mouthpiece of the federal government it was typical that reports & documents emanating from Congress would appear in print first in this newspaper.

Not surprisingly most of this four page issue is ta... See More
December 3, 1644
NOUVELLES, Paris, France, December 3, 1644 This issue predates the earliest English language newspaper we have in our inventory by several years.

This titl... See More

ARMY & NAVY JOURNAL, New York, April 22, 1865 Subtitled: "Gazette Of The Regular And Volunteer Forces", this 16 page issue is simply filled with military reports, almost entirely on the Civil War at this time.

August 23, 1873
HARPER'S WEEKLY August 23, 1873. Certainly the prime content is the very nice full pg. Winslow Homer print "Sea Side Sketches - A Clam Bake." which is in great condition.

November 9, 1886
THE DAILY TOMBSTONE, Pima County, Arizona, Nov. 2 '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
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".

May 22, 1927
THE NEW YORK TIMES, May 22, 1927 This front page ranks among the most recognizable (and most desired) of the twentieth century, not far behind the famous "Dewey Defeats Truman" Chicago Tribune headline of 1948.
The three-line banner head says it all: "LINDBERGH DOES IT! TO PARIS IN 33 1/2 HOURS; FLIES 1,000 MILES THROUGH SNOW AND SLEET; CHEERING FRENCH CARRY HIM OFF FIELD&quo... See More
October 30, 1929
THE NEW YORK TIMES, October 30, 1929 Of the several dates of the prestigious "Times" which reported the Stock Market Crash in late October this ranks among the best. The four column, three line headline at the top of the front page reads: "STOCKS COLLAPSE IN 16,410,030 SHARE DAY BUT RALLY AT CLOSE CHEERS BROKERS; BANKERS OPTIMISTIC, TO CONTINUE AID". There are relat... See More
