Terrific engraving of a trumpeting news boy...
Item # 600983
February 22, 1836
DEREIZENDE NIEUWS-BODE, Amsterdam, Sept. 18, 1836
* Uncommon title
* Nice masthead engraving
A curious little newspaper in Dutch, perhaps most notable for the comparatively large, nice engraving on the front page of a man on horseback "trumpeting" the news. Note the iconic windmill in the background. I believe the title translates to "Traveling News boy".
Measures 6 1/4 by 7 1/2 inches, 4 pages, great condition.
