Early Horatio Alger story...

Item # 568218

September 03, 1859

GLEASON'S PICTORIAL LINE-OF-BATTLESHIP (very early), Boston, Massachusetts, September 3, 1859 This is one of the more ornate newspapers of the 19th century to be found with a huge & decorative masthead (see photo) and embellishments around the margins. But the prime content within these 8 pages is the page 7 story--written specifically for this newspaper--titled "The Secret Of Success, by Horatio Alger, Jr." (see photo). This item takes most of a column. Some water staining near the bottom of the page not affecting this text, otherwise quite nice. An early & rare Horatio Alger story.
