Item # 611175
November 23, 1898
MOTHER LODE MAGNET, Jamestown, California, Nov. 23, 1898
* Very rare title
One of the best names for a mining town newspaper to be found. This is a very rare title, as Gregory (Union List of American Newspapers) does not list any institutions as having any issues. Formatted much like most newspapers of the day with much local news and a wealth of advertising. Not surprisingly many news items relate to mining. This was the only newspaper ever printed in Jamestown, which today is a California Historical Landmark due to its mining heritage.
Complete in 4 pages, evenly toned, minor loss at the blank spine margin, very nice, clean condition.
