Very rare title from the "broom corn capital of the world"...



Item # 642271

August 16, 1866

THE ARCOLA RECORD, Illinois, August 16, 1866 

* Douglas County
* Very rare title


This is the volume 1 number 17 issue of a very scarce newspaper, as Gregory (Union List of American Newspapers) lists only two institutions having just a single issue each (1876 and 1883) and another institution having only issues dated after October, 1914. Page 2 has a plea by the publisher to get more people to subscribe to make the newspaper an on-going enterprise.
Various news & ads of the day, four pages, a little light damp staining, minor spine wear, nice condition.
