eBay Fixed Price Item # 394396261977

Offered is an original, historic, & collectible old newspaper: THE CHRISTIAN HISTORY, Boston, Massachusetts, May 21, 1743 * Rare colonial periodical This was the first successful magazine in America although formatted unlike typical magazines.

As the subtitle reads: "Containing Accounts of the Propagation & Revival of Religion in Great Britain & America", this 8 page magazine is almost entirely taken up with religious content from the "Great Awakening" period in American history. In great condition, measures 4 3/4 by 8 inch... See More

Extraordinary Paul Revere Join or Die Snake Woodcut Masthead 1774 Newspaper


eBay Fixed Price Item # 374279010589

Offered is an original, historic, & collectible old newspaper: THE MASSACHUSETTS SPY, Or Thomas's Boston Journal, October 27, 1774   * Extremely rare publication w/ Paul Revere * "Join or Die" snake issue masthead It would be difficult to properly place both the scarcity and desirability of this newspaper in the confect of American history. This issue has the famous "Join Or Die" engraving stretching across the masthead. In the same way that the famous "Dewey Defeats Truman" issue of the Chicago Tribune is commonly used in history books--typically the photo with a smiling Harry Truman waving it--so too is this famous newspaper when images of a revolutionary theme are needed. What image could better portray within its masthead the revolutionary spirit? In our 46 years in this ... See More

Rare 18th Century Colonial New York Short Lived Publication 1753 Old Newspaper


eBay Fixed Price Item # 374255648082

Offered is an original, historic, & collectible old newspaper: THE INDEPENDENT REFLECTOR, New York, July 12, 1753  * Rare Colonial New York original * Short lived publication This rare newspaper lasted for less than one year, publishing but 52 issues.

A fine opportunity to purchase at a reasonable price a very early issue--over 265 years old--by James Parker from the colonial press of New York. American titles from the 1750's are rarely found. Four pages, 6 3/4 by 10 3/4 inches, a bit of foxing, nice condition.
