Illustrated runaway boy advertisement...

Item # 585889

August 12, 1829

MIDDLESEX GAZETTE, Middletown, Connecticut, Aug. 12, 1829 

* Unusual runaway "apprentice" boy ad

Among the several illustrated ads is an interesting one offering a "1 Mill Reward" for a runaway "...boy named Henry Beebee..." with a description of him. The engraving shows a well-dressed guy on a stroll; one of the more interesting "runaway" prints I have seen (see photo), and the offer of a "1 mill" reward would seem to be an insult to his value. Four pages, nice condition.
