Broadside "Extra" edition printed because the ship arrived...
Item # 564338
November 20, 1841
NEW YORK HERALD--EXTRA , Nov. 20, 1841 An interesting broadside "Extra" edition, obviously printed to report the news received with the arrival of the ship "Caledonia" as proclaimed in the masthead. The news is exclusively from England with items headed: "Great Fire in the Tower of London...Continued Depression in Trade...Revolutionary Plot in Belgium" and more. Plus there are some American items including: "Trial of Edward Boling, the Famous Bigamist--Severity of North Carolina Justice" and "Hunter's Lodges in the U. States". The back page is entirely blank, the definition of a broadside.
Single sheet, 15 by 19 1/2 inches, excellent condition.
