With a small broadside "leaflet" issue...
Item # 621244
March 5, 1892
THE MERCURY, Coronado, San Diego County, California, March 5, 1892
* Uncommon title
* Hotel del Coronado fame
A very rare newspaper from this island community in San Diego Bay, famous for the Hotel del Coronado which is its prime feature. Indeed, a pg. 2 item notes: "A visit to San Diego without seeing the Hotel Del Coronado would be like going to Washington without seeing the Capitol."
An 8 page issue with an interesting variety of news and many advertisements. But the most intriguing part of this issue is the little broadside "Mercury Leaflet" which is tucked inside, being a small sheet measuring 3 1/4 by 8 5/8 in, printed on one side only, and in excellent condition (see). Also within is a nice illustrated bicycle ad.
Four pages, 11 by 15 inches, some minor edge wear and damp staining near the spine.
