Item # 611978
April 30, 1859
GLEASON'S WEEKLY LINE-OF-BATTLE SHIP, Boston, 1859 This remains one of the more ornate newspapers of the 19th century, with a large masthead featuring a full-masted ship with other decorative & patriotic embellishments, plus a decorative, naval-themed border around each of the 8 pages.
A lot of nine issues, all in "2nd rate" condition due to damp staining, fold tears, etc. These are not "fully damaged" issues.
