From the Oklahoma Territory...
Item # 660923
July 21, 1897
THE DAILY OKLAHOMAN, Oklahoma City, July 21,1897 This is actually a "territorial" newspaper, as Oklahoma did not become a state until ten years later in 1907, one of only 3 of the contiguous 48 to join the union in the 20th century (New Mexico & Arizona the other two). It is quite rare to find Oklahoma newspapers from the 1800's.
Formatted much like other newspapers of the day with both ads and news reports. Complete as an 8 page newspaper, small folio size, even browning with some edge tears & minor chipping, some old tape mends at the bottom of pages. Loose at the spine. Should be handled carefully.
