Item #663996GENTLEMAN'S MAGAZINE, London, November, 1776 This issue begins with "Proceedings in the House of Commons..." which includes discussion on the Revolutionary War, including: "...Nothing could have afforded me so much satisfaction as to have been able to inform you...that the troubles which have so long distracted my colonies in North America were at an end; and that my...

May 27, 1862
THE CHRISTIAN BANNER, Fredericksburg, Virginia, May 27, 1862 This is certainly one of the more rare newspapers from this Confederate state. It began in 1848 but ceased publication in 1862. Its editor, James Hunnicut, was a minister of a Free Will 'Union' congregation, was considered to be quite eccentric. As the war neared he became an outspoken Unionist and locals forced him to shut... See More
August 1, 1632
Dutch newsletter/pamphlet from Amsterdam, August, 1632. A very rare news pamphlet by the famed early Broer Jansz, one of the most prolific newsmen of the 17th century. Included with this item is an extensive biography of him and his work.
Included also is a translation of this 4 page pamphlet, headed: "Triumphante Tijdinghe" [Triumphant News] with the translation continuing: "... See More
October 17, 1862
DAILY MISSISSIPPIAN, Jackson, Oct. 17, 1862 Certainly one of the more rare Confederate titles we have offered. This is a volume one issue.
Among the front page articles are: "Abolition Meetings at the North" "Resolutions" "Yankee Officers Marrying Negroes" "List of Casualties in the 40th Mississippi Reg. at the Battle of Corinth, Oct. 4trh, 1862".

February 2, 1641
GAZETTE, Paris, France, Feb. 2. 26, 1641 This issue predates the earliest English language newspaper we have in our inventory by nearly 15 years. This was the very first regular newspaper published in France, started in 1631 by Théophraste Renaudot but with influential backing by the powerful Cardinal de Richelieu. The title has the first letter embellished, as well as the first... See More
August 7, 1969
THE VILLAGE VOICE, Greenwich Village, New York, August 7, 1969 A significant newspaper on the Woodstock Music Festival.
It is worth noting that "The Village Voice" was an American news and culture paper, known for being the country's first alternative newsweekly. So it is notable that this newspaper would have advertisements for Woodstock, and perhaps one of just a few select ... See More
October 30, 1929
CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE, October 30, 1929 A very notable issue as it reports the tragic event of "Black Tuesday", the most catastrophic day in the market's history which would become the forerunner of the Great Depression.
As was typical of most newspapers, they put an optimistic spin on their banner headline: "STOCK SLUMP ENDS IN RALLY" with the subheads: "... See More
October 5, 1863
NEW YORK DAILY TRIBUNE, October 5, 1863 Although almost every President since George Washington has issued a proclamation for a "day of thanksgiving", typically celebrated in November but at other times of the year as well, it was Abraham Lincoln who formalized Thanksgiving Day to be celebrated the fourth Thursday of every year and making it a national holiday.
On page 4 is the co... See More
January 19, 1853
NEW YORK DAILY TIMES, Jan. 19, 1853 The back page has a report from Washington which includes, in part, some details of the 1841 abduction and subsequent enslavement of freedman Solomon Northup as described in his 1853 memoir "Twelve Years a Slave" and depicted in the 2013 Oscar-winning film based on his account. Part of the subhead notes: "...the Kidnapping Case--Experi... See More
July 20, 1861
DAILY PROGRESS, New Bern, North Carolina, July 20, 1861 Certainly one of the less common titles from the Confederacy, as rarely have I seen it offered. This coastal town didn't remain Confederate for very long as it fell to General Burnside on March 14, 1862 with the Battle of New Bern. So truly "Confederate" issues can be difficult to come by.
Among the front page items... See More
October 29, 1929
THE MONTREAL DAILY STAR, Canada, October 29, 1929 See the photos for the great banner headline announcing the infamous stock market crash of 1929: "WORLD MARKETS NOSE-DIVE TO NEW DEPTHS" plus an equally dramatic subhead: "Slump Gathers Momentum; And Local Exchange Leads In Disastrous Price Crash" plus even more.
Rarely were newspapers this blunt in reporting this event, ... See More
March 6, 1861
DAILY JOURNAL, Wilmington, N.C., March 6, 1861 Printed on page 2 in this famous soon-to-be-Confederate port city is Abraham Lincoln's: "Inaugural Address" which takes nearly two full column. In his address he tries to allay the fears of the Southern states as to his motives, and near the end he says: "...I am loth to close. We are not enemies but friends. We must not be en... See More
July 16, 1685
THE LONDON GAZETTE, England, July 16, 1685 The report of great significance is the rather brief, yet very historic, found on page 2 & datelined from Whitehall, July 15: "This day the late Duke of Monmouth, being attained of High Treason by Act of Parliament, was Beheaded on a scaffold for that purpose; erected on Tower Hill."...

This is prefaced with another Whitehall report

September 2, 1775
PENNSYLVANIA LEDGER, Philadelphia, Sept. 2, 1775 Taking nearly one-third of the front page and most of page 2 is the extension of the very historic New England Restraining Act by Parliament. This was the King's response to the American colonies' decision to boycott British goods. The Act provided that New England's trade be limited to Britain and the British West Indies, tr... See More
June 7, 1863
SOUTHERN ILLUSTRATED NEWS, Richmond, June 7, 1863 A very rare publication from the Confederacy which seldom comes to the collector market. Although much of the content was literary in nature, there are news reports and a few illustrations.
The front page is entirely taken up with a nice illustration of: "General Lawrence O'Brien Branch" beneath which is noted: "Killed at ... See More
July 4, 1863
NEW YORK TRIBUNE, July 4, 1863 The top portion of the first column on the front page is taken up with some great & very historic heads on the Battle of Gettysburg, including: "REBEL INVASION" "The Fighting At Gettysburg" "The Severest Actions of the War" "Losses Heavy On Both Sides" "Longstreet Taken Prisoner" "Advantage on Our Side&... See More
October 14, 1779
THE LONDON EVENING POST, England, Oct. 14, 1779 Certainly the prime and most historic content in this issue is the terrific page 1 and 2 report concerning the famous naval battle of the Bonhomme Richard vs. the Serapis "starring" John Paul Jones.
The report is primarily a lengthy & very detailed letter--taking over one-quarter of the front page & concluding on page 2--sign... See More
January 29, 1782
THE CONNECTICUT COURANT & WEEKLY INTELLIGENCER, Hartford, Jan. 29, 1782 The front page is mostly taken up with: "An Ordinance Ascertaining What Captures on Water Shall be Lawful". This lengthy text carries over to take close to half of page 2 & is signed in type by: John Hanson, President of Congress.
Page 3 has some optimistic hopes from London including: "Though the... See More
September 4, 1781
THE CONNECTICUT COURANT & WEEKLY INTELLIGENCER, Hartford, Sept. 4, 1781 Page 2 begins with a report from Annapolis which foreshadows the coming events at Yorktown: "The apprehensions of an invasion are at present dissipated; the fleet, supposed to be destined for Baltimore or this city, has entered York river; the troops have landed at Gloucester and York, and are fortifying.....

See More
May 14, 1865
STATE JOURNAL - EXTRA, Sunday, May 14, 1865 A terrific little broadside "Extra" with no mention of city or state of origin as was typical, given such releases were for local consumption only. The only hint that it may be from Michigan is in one of the headlines.
The three headlines announce: "HIGHLY IMPORTANT ! " "Capture of Jeff. Davis and His Staff" "Col... See More
July 13, 1831
HAMPSHIRE GAZETTE, Northampton, Mass., July 13, 1831 The earliest Mormon report we've found in a popular newspaper title is the July 16, 1831 issue of "Niles Weekly Register" which we are currently offering for $370. This issue pre-dates that report by 3 days.
The middle of page 2 has a report headed: "The Mormonites" which includes in part: "This infatuated peo... See More
May 25, 1934
CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE, May 25, 1934 During my 43 years in this hobby I have only occasionally been able to find the famous poem by Bonnie Parker printed in a newspaper. A few times, though rare, I found bits and pieces of the poem, usually the ending only.
But here is the poem in its entirety, found at the top of page 21 with heads: "BONNIE'S POEM FORETELLS END AT LAW'S HANDS&q... See More
Item #654247GENTLEMAN'S MAGAZINE, London, November, 1776 This issue begins with "Proceedings in the House of Commons..." which includes discussion on the Revolutionary War, including: "...Nothing could have afforded me so much satisfaction as to have been able to inform you...that the troubles which have so long distracted my colonies in North America were at an end; and that my...

Item #646575THE GENTLEMAN'S MAGAZINE, London, England, February, 1772 Certainly the most notable item in this issue is the very nice foldout map titled: "A Map of Part of WEST FLORIDA" from Pensacola to the Mouth of Iberville River, with a View to shew the Proper Spot for a Settlement on the Mississippi." The map shows much detail and includes a nice inset of a "Plan for a New Se... 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.... See More
Item #642767GENTLEMAN'S MAGAZINE, London, August, 1756 The first two pages are devoted to the "Caribee Islands" [Caribbean] primarily limited to text on Barbadoes (see photos for portions). But of greater significance is the great and desirable foldout map labeled: "A Map of the CARIBBEE ISLANDS Shewing which belong to England, France, Spain, Dutch, & Danes...". This map fold... See More
Item #640623GENTLEMAN'S MAGAZINE, London, March, 1790 Certainly the prime feature of this issue is the nice, fold-out map: "A Map showing the communication of the Lakes and the Rivers between Lake Superior and Slave Lake in North America."

April 26, 1865
BROWNLOW’S KNOXVILLE WHIG, AND REBEL VENTILATOR, Tennessee, April 26, 1865 W. G. Brownlow, or Parson Brownlow, was a fascinating personality to say the least. He regarded anyone who disagreed with him about religion or politics as an enemy. The circuit-riding Methodist parson turned to the press to spread his harsh anti-Presbyterian, anti-Calvinist rhetoric, and to spread his fer... See More
