3 19th century issues from "Bethlehem"...

Item # 573947 (3 issues) BETHLEHEM DAILY TIMES, Bethlehem, PA, dated in 1867  This is a special offering for the month of August - a three issue set of original post-Civil War 19th century issues from Bethlehem, PA.  Each issue contains a wealth of post-war/reconstruction era reporting and is loaded with period advertisements - including many wood-cut ads. Nice to have mid-19th century issues from what was one of Pennsylvania's largest cities (at the time), and one which would soon be at the center of America's industrial growth along the Lehigh River.

The issues are not fragile as newsprint from this era was made of cotton and linen rags, allowing them to remain very pliable and easy to handle. Each contains 4 pages and is in nice condition.  Each issue has slight browning at the fold. Please see images for details.

The images shown are representative of the look and condition of the issues you will receive, but since each set is unique (one-of-a-kind), actual dates vary within 1867.

Note:  If purchasing acid-free folders, the entire set can be fit into one folder.
