Samuel Bowles' "Across The Continent"...



Item # 597964

November 15, 1865

SPRINGFIELD REPUBLICAN, Massachusetts, Nov. 15, 1865 

* Samuel Bowles' serialized travelogue: "Across The Continent"' 

Three columns of the front page is taken up with a portion of the Samuel Bowles book: "ACROSS THE CONTINENT", "And Home By The Isthmus" and "Letters From Mr Bowles--No. 30".
Fascinating reading from just after the end of the Civil War.
Samuel Bowles was the publisher of this newspaper so this may be the only newspaper in which this serialized work appeared. It would ultimately be published as a book titled "Across the Continent" and he would later publish another: "The Switzerland of America".
Complete in eight pages, minor creasing at the central fold, otherwise nice condition.
