Handsome masthead makes it nice for display...
Item # 215016 MIDDLESEX GAZETTE, Middletown, Connecticut, 1826 Not only is this a nice, "newsy" newspaper from the early part of the 19th century, but perhaps the best feature of this issue is the very handsome masthead which includes nice lettering and a large engraving of a heraldic eagle with sunrays emanating behind it, making it a nice candidate for display. Many of the ads are illustrated as well. Complete in 4 pages, folio size, some scattered foxing, generally in very nice condition. Rarely do we have newspapers from Middletown, Connecticut. The photo below is "generic" however the issue you receive will be from 1826 and have an almost identical look, including the masthead.
