Great Heraldic Eagle Masthead Engraving Catholic Religious Rare 1831 Newspaper


eBay Fixed Price Item # 374158359840

Offered is an original, historic, & collectible old newspaper: UNITED STATES CATHOLIC INTELLIGENCER, Boston, Jan. 27, 1832  * Large masthead with a heraldic eagle This rather rare title lasted for just one year, having begun in October, 1831 and ending in September, 1832. The issue is a "vol. III" issue as this publication was preceded by one titled "Jesuit, or Catholic Sentinel" and they kept the same volume numbering. It was also curiously superseded by the same title as well. Its most striking feature is the very large & deep masthead, taking close to half of the front page, and which includes a large eagle with a scroll in its beak making it very displayable.  As the title would suggest, the content is almost entirely religious. Eight pages, 10 1/4 by 14 1/2 inches, vari... See More
