By a noted Jewish figure...

Item # 639316

April 29, 1828

NEW YORK ENQUIRER FOR THE COUNTRY, April 29, 1828 This newspaper was published by Mordecai Manuel Noah who is credited with being the first Jew born in the United States to reach national prominence. With his last name of Noah he though it appropriate to have an engraving of Noah's Ark in the masthead. In 1819 Noah wrote a play, "She Would Be a Soldier", establishing him as America's first important Jewish American writer. In 1820 Noah tried to establish a Jewish homeland at Grand Island in the Niagara River to be called Ararat (see hyperlink)
This newspaper by Noah lasted for only 3 years. Four pages, various news and ads of the day, good condition.
