Item # 636246
November 12, 1859
NEW YORK HERALD, Nov. 12, 1859
* Capture of a slaver - slave ship
* Harper's Ferry insurrection
Front page reports include: "The Slave Trade" "Capture of an Alleged Slaver---Her Arrival in New York" which is concerning the slave ship Emily & takes almost the entire first column (see). Also: "The Harper's Ferry Outbreak" "Sentence of Cook and Other Insurrectionists".
Eight pages, irregular at the spine margin but no loss of text, otherwise very nice.
