Playing Cards Manufactory for sale...

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.
