Decorative Masthead of a Raft...

Item # 219243

March 19, 1868

EVERY AFTERNOON, March 19, 1868, from New York, NY.  The best feature of this title is a magnificent masthead of a raft floating in the sunshine, with the tag-line:  "My free drift halts not particularly, but moves itself in a wide sea. - Shakespeare".  Mostly literary content, with some comentary on the news of the day.  Minor edge tears and some fold browning (see images), but mostly nice due to the use of rag paper.
