Item # 547557 SACRAMENTO UNION, California 1859.

* Sacramento, California

This is one of the earliest California newspapers we have the pleasure to offer. As might be imagined issues from the Gold Rush vicinity--just ten years after the start of the rush--are difficult to find. As perhaps you've noticed most of our California inventory is from the 1870's and 1880's.
This issue has a wealth of news of the day, not just from California but from all sections of the country. There is a wealth of advertisements as well, many of which include small illustrations.

This issue is complete in four pages and is in very nice, clean condition. A fine opportunity for a very early California newspaper.

The photo below is generic however the issue you receive will have a similar look and will be dated 1859.
