1865 Flags in the masthead...

Item # 588189

July 8, 1865

FLAG OF OUR UNION, Boston, July 8, 1865 

* Uncommon title

This was a popular weekly which in the early 1850's claimed to have the largest circulation of any newspaper in the United States. It was begun by the famed publishers Gleason & Ballou, who lent there names to titles which were much like the later Harper's Weekly. Mostly literary content with a very ornate masthead.
Sixteen pages, very nice condition.
