Very early from California...
Item # 130218 SACRAMENTO UNION, California 1859 This is one of the earliest California newspapers we have the pleasure to offer. As might be imagined issues from the Gold Rush vicinity--just ten years after the start of the rush--are difficult to find. As perhaps you've noticed most of our California inventory is from the 1870's and 1880's.
This issue has a wealth of news of the day, not just from California but from all sections of the country. There is a wealth of advertisements as well many of which include small illustrations.
This issue is complete in four pages and is in very nice, clean condition. A fine opportunity for a very early California newspaper.
The photo below is generic however the issue you receive will have a similar look and will be dated 1859.
