Item # 614380

August 19, 1883

ST. LOUIS GLOBE-DEMOCRAT, Missouri, August 19, 1883

* Sitka, Alaska
* Baranof Island

This uncommon Midwestern title has news of the day with many advertisements. Page 4 has an article headed: "Life At Sitka" Text takes up 1 1/2 columns.
This issue is not fragile as newsprint back then was made of cotton and linen rags, allowing them to remain very pliable and easy to handle. Complete in 16 pages, minor irregularity along the spine, very nice condition.
