From the Territory of Utah...

Item # 130300

January 01, 1881

THE DESERET NEWS, the weekly edition, Salt Lake City, Utah, 1881 A very nice issue and rather early for Utah, from 15 years before it became a state. At this time it was known as the "Utah Territory". This 16 page issue contains a wide wealth of news of the day, certainly much from this Mormon stronghold with much Mormon-related content, but other news as well including local, statewide, and national events. There are many ads throughout also, several of which are illustrated. This issue was never bound nor trimmed so the issue opens up to be one huge sheet of paper--just as it came off the press. Very nice, white condition with just a bit of minor margin wear as the quality of newsprint used by this paper was extremely high. Measures about 13 by 17 inches. The photo below is "generic" however the issue you receive will have the same look and will be dated 1881.
