Item # 650285

April 14, 1821

NILES' WEEKLY REGISTER, Baltimore, Maryland, April 14, 1821  Over two pages are taken up with a lengthy & detailed report headed: "Navy of the United States" with discussion on costs of operations, etc. The report is signed in type by: John Rodgers. Nearly 1 1/2 pages are taken up with: "Slave Trade" which has much discussion on this controversial subject (see for portions).
Complete in sixteen pages, 6 by 9 1/2 inches, very nice condition.

This small size newspaper began in 1811 and was a prime source for national political news of the first half of the 19th century. As noted in Wikipedia, this title: "...(was) one of the most widely-circulated magazines in the United States...Devoted primarily to politics...considered an important source for the history of the period."
