Item # 643812
August 21, 1811
COLUMBIAN CENTINEL, Boston, August 21, 1811
* Playing Cards Manufactory
* Letter to President James Madison
The prime content is the page 3 ad for the sale (at auction) of a Playing Cards Manufactory - with considerable details as to what was to be sold. Such ads are uncommon. Other news of the day along with period advertising is found throughout, including a front page letter from B. Irvine (editor of the Baltimore Whig) to President James Madison.
The issue is complete in 4 pages, and has some light inking, but is overall quite nice. See images for details.
