Item # 540359
May 10, 1834
NILES' WEEKLY REGISTER, Baltimore, May 10, 1834
* Davy Crockett
A brief item at the top of an inside page mentions: "Col. Crockett is yet on his 'tower' to the north, and has much amused the people by his originalities, and the broad good humor that plays on his 'honest face'. "
There is much reporting from Congress, and also an article headed: "Great Aeronautic Expedition" concerning a trip in a balloon. This latter article has a piece from the margin affecting two letters with no loss of readability.
Sixteen pages, 6 1/2 by 10 1/4 inches, nice condition.
As noted in Wikipedia, this title: "...(was) one of the most widely-circulated magazines in the United States...Devoted primarily to politics...considered an important source for the history of the period."
