Samuel Bowles' "Across The Continent"...
Item # 597964
November 15, 1865
SPRINGFIELD REPUBLICAN, Massachusetts, November 15, 1865
* Samuel Bowles' serialized travelogue : "Across The Continent"'
Three columns of the front page is taken up with a portion of the Samuel Bowles book: "ACROSS THE CONTINENT", "And Home By The Isthmus" and "Letters From Mr Bowles--No. 30".
Fascinating reading from just after the end of the Civil War.
Samuel Bowles was the publisher of this newspaper so this may be the only newspaper in which this serialized work appeared. It would ultimately be published as a book titled "Across the Continent" and he would later publish another: "The Switzerland of America" (see hyperlink for more on him).
Other news of the day throughout. Complete in eight pages, minor creasing at the central fold, otherwise nice condition.
