MARYSVILLE DAILY APPEAL, California, July Dec. 2, 1877
* Rare Old West title
In the days of the California Gold Rush, Marysville was a stopping point for riverboats from Sacramento and San Francisco that carried miners on their way to the digging grounds. A sign on the roadside as one enters Marysville carries the slogan: "Gateway to The Gold Fields." At that time it was one of the largest cities in California, named after one of the survivors of the Donner Party tragedy. News of the day plus a great wealth of ads.
Four pages, margin wear with some small tears, but no text loss, sold as is.
