The post Civil War Era...

The influence of newspapers???

Item # 573958

June 17, 1867

BETHLEHEM DAILY TIMES, Bethlehem, PA, dated in 1867  This is an original post-Civil War 19th century issues from Bethlehem, PA. 

*Editorial comment on the influence of newspapers

Page one has an interesting article on the influence of newspaper editors upon their readership. Additionally, the issue contains post-war/reconstruction era reporting and is loaded with period advertisements - including many wood-cut ads. Nice to have a mid-19th century issue 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.
Complete in 4 pages and in nice condition.  There is slight browning at the fold. Please see images for details.
