By a noted Jewish figure...



Item # 639317

April 28, 1828

NEW YORK ENQUIRER FOR THE COUNTRY, April 28, 1828

* Jewish publisher
* Nice masthead


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 Wikipedia/web-search for more).
This newspaper by Noah lasted for only 3 years. Page 2 has an ad supporting Andrew Jackson & John C. Calhoun for President & Vice President. 
Four pages, various news and ads of the day, good condition.
