Broadside, campaign newspaper...
Item # 153001 THE NEW REPUBLIC, Washington, DC, 1878. See the photo below for an example of this title from our archives. A fascinating & quite rare newspaper not recorded in U.L.S. or Gregory. It was only published for 19 issues! This is a campaign newspaper for the Republican party, and noted in the masthead: "The New Republic Will be published during the Congressional Campaign & will endeavor to circulate sound Republican doctrine and reliable information." This is a broadside newspaper, as it is singlesheet and printed on the front side only (back side is blank). Unusual! Note that the photo is "generic" and the issue you get will not have these specific photos or be of this specific date but will have the format as shown. Measures about 27"x20".
